Hello, all;

I see questions about applied anthropology here, so once again it is
time to post the reference to Practicing Anthro, Vol. 15, No. 1, 1993.

The issue is devoted to the applied anthro program here at the University
of South Florida, where the MA has existed for 20 years, and the PhD for 10.

I believe somewhere in there is a discussion and perhaps statistics
dealing with the number of graduates who are actually working in applied
anthro positions.

The view here from the Throne of the Graduate Secretary is that
"placement" [although this is not a vocational program] is very good.

Our MA curriculum requires 4 core courses, 4 grad-level seminars in
applied anthropology [topics variable], a grad-level statistics course, a
grad-level course outside the Department, internship and thesis.

Our PhD program is separate from the MA program [you must already have an
MA to apply]: it requires 8 courses in applied anthro, 3 elective anthro
courses, Tools of Research and external specialization requirements,
qualifying exam, internship and dissertation.

Not exactly a drive-through program.

For details, questions, etc. email:

Shiny new application packets are *IN*!

(Deadlines: March 1 annually for PhD program; March 1 and Oct. 1 for MA)
