Graduate Program in Anthropology

As the social and economic wave of globalization continues to spread, there has been a movement to reexamine local cultural values, including the conservation of traditional culture and historical heritage. One of the distinct characteristics of our modern world is the political phenomenon of conflicts erupting over the discrepancy between global and local. Students in the Graduate Program in Anthropology (cultural anthropology and archaeology) learn systematic analytical techniques from long-term and wide-ranging viewpoints, and in so doing, become cultivated professionals in fields such as specialized research, museum curatorship, cultural administration, global cultural program management, and high school teaching.

Features of the Department

The curriculum of the degree is centered on studies in cultural anthropology and archaeology, providing an education based on cultural resources studies that promote reallocation of research materials. Groundwork courses essential to the further understanding of anthropology are also available. These include studies in cultural resources, scientific cultural history, and information processing. With the aim of fostering student research skills, anthropology and archaeology research projects carried our jointly by students and faculty members are also presented every year during the spring and fall semesters.
