Anthropology Graduate Program

The Department of Anthropology at UK offers graduate training in three traditional subdisciplines of anthropology:

We train students to become professional anthropologists who can engage in both academic and non-academic settings, with strong foundations in theoretical and substantive areas. We encourage students to take classes across the sub-disciplines, and develop a graduate program that supports their interests.
