Applied Anthropology

Master of Arts

Offered at IUPUI by School of Liberal Arts.


The Master of Arts in Applied Anthropology offers students the opportunity to use anthropological theories and methods toward the goals of solving real-world problems.

The program is constructed around a set of core courses together with mentored research projects and internships with community stakeholders. The degree takes advantage of our long-standing departmental strengths in public archaeology, urban anthropology, international development, globalization, medical anthropology, and museum studies.

Students may choose to follow a targeted curriculum, focusing on a particular aspect of the discipline; all students will also be well-trained in a broad range of anthropological approaches.
