Graduate training at Albany maintains the concept of anthropology as a four-field discipline, and this broad approach is at the core of our program at the MA level. At the PhD level students specialize in a particular research area, either within a subdiscipline or else between two or more anthropology subdisciplines or other branches of scholarship. The Department of Anthropology is the setting for numerous research projects, most of which are supported by external grant funding. Many faculty research projects involve graduate student participation, leading to MA-level and dissertation research projects in the U.S. and abroad.
