While there is no centralized way to organize a department visit, you may contact individual faculty to let them know of your interest and to discuss scheduling an upcoming visit.
The Department of Anthropology accepts students only for the Ph.D. The department does not offer a terminal Master's Degree. Admission decisions are made once a year and all students are admitted for the fall semester. The deadline for application is January 1 for the following academic year. We are a highly selective department and normally admit three to four students per subfield each year from a competitive pool of U.S. and international applicants.
