B.A.Anthropology

The 3-year BA program will provide students with a foundation in the field of Anthropology and its main subfields.

Anthropologists are no longer found only in far off and exotic locations; they now work in government, private industry, law enforcement, and non-profit organizations, to name just a few. The unique skills and perspectives that an Anthropology degree provides is an understanding about how we are all shaped by the cultural, social, political, and historical contexts in which we live. Employers identify critical thinking, communication, and problem solving as the most important skills they look for in university graduates. An Anthropology degree emphasizes these important skills, improves your knowledge about cultural differences, and provides a broad understanding of the experience of being human. 

By the end of the program students will be able to:

  • demonstrate critical thinking skills
  • implement the self-directed exploration of anthropological methods
  • demonstrate enhanced collaboration skills
  • communicate research to a professional or public audience
  • articulate new perspectives on anthropological themes

M.A.Master of Arts in Anthropology

The department grants an M.A. in anthropology in the following areas of specialization: Archaeology, Culture, Health and Disease, Biological Anthropology, and Cultural Anthropology. Students admitted to the M.A. program have the option of doing coursework and then 1) writing a MRP (1-year), or 2) writing a scholarly thesis (2-year) which demonstrates ability to conduct original research.

Anthropologists work in a wide array of areas, from government to large corporations, to NGO's and education.  A great website to get more information about Anthropology careers is from the American Anthropological Association. 

Many employers are interested in the skills which Anthropology graduate students tend to possess. These include:

  • Knowledge about biological, ecological, cultural and long-term historical factors that influence human behaviour
  • Theoretical approaches and practical methods for enhancing cross-cultural understanding
  • Knowledge of a variety of ethnic and cultural groups living in Canada and abroad
  • Skills in social research, qualitative interviewing and fieldwork, as well as quantitative methods
  • Experience in both writing descriptive and analytical reports
  • The ability to analyze the root causes of social problems, and to work towards solutions with people from diverse  cultural and socio-economic backgrounds
  • Four graduate level courses (Thesis-based)
  • Six graduate level courses (Course-based)
  • Participation in the professionalization workshop in first year of program
  • MA thesis (Thesis-based)
  • Major Research Paper (Course-based)

Criteria of Admission

Admission Requirements for Master’s Degree

The University requires, as the major indicator of ability to complete a Master’s program successfully, the holding of an Honours bachelor’s degree with at least a B+ average (equivalent to a McMaster 8.5 GPA out of 12) in the most current 20 half credit courses in the discipline, or relating to the discipline, in which the applicant proposes to do graduate work.

Applicants are advised that admission is highly competitive, and that achieving this minimum scholastic criterion is normally not sufficient for an offer of admission. In evaluating applications, the department carefully scrutinizes the total application package, including letters of reference, a statement of interest, and a sample of recent work. Applicants must have clearly developed intellectual and research interests. MA applicants should have at least a tentatively defined thesis research project or subject area(s) for the major research paper (MRP) or comprehensive exams.

In some circumstances, exceptionally qualified students holding an Honours BA in Anthropology may be offered direct entry into the Ph.D program.

Important: If English is not your native language:

Applicants are required to submit evidence of their proficiency in the English language as part of their application. The most common evidence is a score on one of the following exams:

  • TOEFL: minimum score of 92 (internet based), 237 (computer based) or 580 (paper based)
  • IELTS (Academic): minimum overall score of 6.5, with at least 5.5 in each section
  • MELAB: minimum score of 90

Applicants who have completed an academic ESL program through Canadian academic institutions may petition to have this considered in lieu of TOEFL

Funding

Students to whom we offer admission are automatically considered for financial assistance from funds available to the Anthropology Department – no special forms need be filled out. Funding is awarded on academic excellence and the availability of funds (amounts vary from year to year.) Funding is open to all domestic students. This fall seventy-one percent (71%) of our returning MA & PhD students and incoming PhD students have won a major external scholarship.  The total of these major external scholarships is just under $457,000! 

The Harry Lyman Hooker Senior Scholarship: These awards are given to Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents who are entering the first year of a Master's or Doctoral program at McMaster in those Humanities or Social Sciences disciplines or fields of study that receive funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (or its successor).

The Fund is intended to support projects that are critical for completion of the PhD thesis and that normally would not be possible through other means. 

Bursaries 

  • There are some funds available for bursaries, awarded on the basis of financial need. Students should apply directly to Student Financial Aid
  • GSA/SGS Bursary: Bursaries are set at a current value of $500. Applications may be submitted at any time. A maximum of 3 bursaries will be awarded each academic year. Please note that graduate students are only eligible to receive one GSA bursary per academic year.

Ph.D.Doctor of Philosophy in Anthropology

Admission to the doctoral program is very competitive and is based on a consideration of demonstrated scholarly excellence, suitability of research interests, availability of appropriate supervision, and availability of openings. Most successful applicants have sufficient background in their area of specialization within anthropology to benefit from advanced training in the field.

Anthropologists work in a wide array of areas, from government to large corporations, to NGO's and education.  A great website to get more information about Anthropology careers is from the American Anthropological Association.

Many employers are interested in the skills, which Anthropology graduate students tend to possess. These include:

  • The ability to analyze the root causes of social problems, and to work towards solutions with people from diverse  cultural and socio-economic backgrounds
  • Four graduate level courses
  • Participation in the professionalization workshop in first year of program
  • Comprehensive examination
  • Thesis with defense

Criteria of Admission

Admission Requirements for Ph.D Degree

For applicants who hold a Master’s degree, the primary requirements are distinction in their previous graduate work (equivalent to at least a McMaster B+), and strong letters of reference.

Normally a student will have completed the requirements for an MA degree in anthropology before their admission into the doctoral program. Since application for the program is usually made before completion of the MA degree, a student may be accepted conditionally on completion of the MA degree.

For purposes of admission, an MA in anthropology from any other university is considered equivalent to that awarded by McMaster. Equivalence also is recognized between an MA degree achieved by examination, by course work alone, by thesis, or by major research paper. It should be noted, however, that students who have major gaps in their anthropological background will be required to undertake additional work after admission into the program.

A student who is already registered in the MA program at McMaster may apply for the department's PhD program. Registration in the MA program does not guarantee admission into the PhD program.

In some circumstances, exceptionally qualified students holding an Honours BA in Anthropology may be offered direct entry into the Ph.D program.

Admission to the doctoral program is very competitive and is based on a consideration of demonstrated scholarly excellence, suitability of research interests, availability of appropriate supervision, and availability of openings. Most successful applicants have sufficient background in their area of specialization within anthropology to benefit from advanced training in the field. Completion of the minimum requirements for acceptance into the doctoral program does not guarantee acceptance. It should also be understood that all applicants for the doctoral program for a given year, whether already enrolled at McMaster or not, normally will have been considered together during the second term of the preceding year. A discussion of required application materials and procedures can be found in this handbook.

Only under exceptional circumstances will the department consider for admission any student who has taken two prior degrees in anthropology at McMaster.

Important: If English is not your native language:

Applicants are required to submit evidence of their proficiency in the English language as part of their application. The most common evidence is a score on one of the following exams:

  • TOEFL: minimum score of 92 (internet based), 237 (computer based) or 580 (paper based)
