The Master's Program in Anthropology has a single yearly application deadline, February 15 .
Students who have earned or have nearly completed a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States, or a foreign equivalent, may apply for admission to graduate study programs at UAA. Admission is granted to applicants who have received their baccalaureate degree and whose credentials indicate their ability to pursue graduate work. Students must have at least a 3.0 overall undergraduate GPA. It is also strongly recommended that applicants have completed at the time of admittance a minimum of 18 hours of undergraduate coursework in anthropology, maintaining an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Undergraduate majors in anthropology are preferred, and students are expected to have completed courses in or equivalent to Cultural Anthropology (ANTH A202), Biological Anthropology (ANTH A205), Fundamentals of Archaeology (ANTH A211), and the History of Anthropology (ANTH A410).
