The MA program offers both course and thesis options. The thesis option requires an extended period of ethnographic fieldwork and can be completed in two years. The course option does not involve fieldwork and can be completed in one year.Many of our former graduate students have gone on to become professional anthropologists. Others have used anthropology to build careers in fields such as journalism, filmmaking, and public policy. In recent decades, the Department has placed a strong emphasis on the use of film and video in our research projects and has established a Visual Anthropology Unit, comprised of several faculty members and graduate students. A number of graduate students have been able to produce ethnographic films to accompany their thesis research. All graduate students have access to the Digital Research Centre for Qualitative Fieldwork, which houses a range of recording and processing equipment, including audio and video recorders and editing equipment, as well as a highly skilled full-time staff member to provide technical support and training.
