The purpose of the Graduate Program in Anthropology at Yale is the development of creative scholars and scientists who will teach or otherwise apply their knowledge and skills within one or more of the traditionally recognized fields of anthropology. This goal may be realized, we believe, by encouraging and stimulating students to do original and creative research as early as possible in their careers. To ensure the attainment of these goals, the Department admits only a small number of graduate students each year and assists each one to develop and follow a flexible program designed to meet his or her own needs. The MA degree is intended only for students not continuing in the Ph.D. program. No anthropology student may petition for both the MA and the M.Phil. Degree. The MA requirements include: Completion of one full year of graduate study with an average grade of High Pass or better and Work of quality judged appropriate by the Department for the award of the degree, subject to review by the relevant Graduate School Committee on Degrees. In reviewing an application for this degree, the Department pays special attention to the quality of written papers submitted by the applicant in course work.
