The graduate program in Brown’s anthropology department encourages a diversity of doctoral research agendas in socio-cultural anthropology, anthropological archaeology, and linguistic anthropology. Our program balances a rigorous curriculum of core classes with more specialized training in advanced courses. Our graduate classes consist almost exclusively of seminars and independent study courses, allowing an intimate, tutorial approach to training that aims for graduate studies to be demanding and intense for both faculty and students. Anthropology and Population Anthropology and Population is a special track in Brown University's Ph.D. program in anthropology. Candidates file a regular application for admission with Anthropology with the Graduate School, but indicate in their essay their interest in this program. Students must fulfill all of the requirements for doctoral program in anthropology, but also must fulfill additional requirements. They must take two required graduate seminars: Anthropological Demography (ANTH 2300) and Issues in Anthropology and Population (ANTH 2304). They are also required to take one population-related course in another department. They choose Anthropological Demography as one of their preliminary examination topics, participate in the activities of the Working Group in Anthropology and Population and attend the regular colloquia of the Population Studies and Training Center (PSTC).
