The Department of Anthropology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA,
is seeking highly qualified graduate students for our growing,
innovative program in Ecological/Environmental Anthropology.
Potential students wishing to obtain information/application
materials about the M.A. and Ph.D. programs should write to:
Dr. Carolyn Ehardt, Graduate Coordinator, Department of Anthropology,
Baldwin Hall, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602-1619. We can
also be contacted via E-mail at the internet address below.

Qualified graduate students admitted into our program could
potentially participate in several ongoing and proposed projects
dealing with sustainable agriculture, natural resource management,
ethnobiology and ethnomedicine, global change, and biodiversity.
At present, the Department has significant funds not being utilized
due to the recency of the new program and a consequent shortage of
qualified students interested in pursing degrees in ecological
anthropology with a focus on contemporary environmental issues,
including food production. Examples of the projects include:
1) USAID funded project on sustainable agriculture and natural
resource management in the Philippines, Burkina Faso, and Ecuador;
(2) a comprehensive "State of the South" study in sustainable
agriculture; (3) NSF enthnographic research training grant;
(4) proposed study of ethnomedicine in the Southeastern United
States; (5) integrated rural development project in the Dominican
Republic. Several other ecologically and environmentally focussed
projects are under preparation. Motivated students with excellent
academic records are encouraged to apply for the M.A. or Ph.D.
program, and to indicate their interest in and background for
participation in one or more of these research areas. Acceptance
into our graduate program is prerequisite to consideration for any
of these projects. Competitive funding for admitted students is
also available through graduate assistantships and tuition waivers.
Please address letters to Dr. Ehardt, at the above address, or
contact the department through internet at: ANTHRO@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU.
