For Potential Graduate Students
University of North Texas master's program
The Master’s Program in Applied Anthropology at UNT allows students to focus on business, technology, and design, if that is where their interests lie. Students receive a strong grounding in anthropological theory while also conducting applied research projects for clients, which in the past have included Nissan, Motorola, and Microsoft. UNT has Tier One status in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
Faculty in our program generously mentor students, and the departmental atmosphere is friendly.
