Students wishing to take advanced study in anthropology are able to do so through the IDIS Masters and through registration in individual 600 level ANTH courses.
Students interested in pursuing this path should consult with an appropriate member of the faculty in the program, who would potentially serve as the student's supervisor. This consultation would establish the appropriateness of this route given the student's career objectives and research interests.
Details regarding admission procedures, deadlines and other pertinent information can be obtained from the Office of Research and Graduate Programs.
An applicant may understake an IDIS program only under the following conditions:
- the applicant's proposed course of study cannot be pursued within an existing degree;
- the applicant has a well-conceived idea of the courses needed for a program of study and of a thesis topic that the applicant wishes to pursue.
- the proposed subject of study (i.e. the thesis topic) be interdisciplinary in scope, drawing on at least two of the University's academic programs;
- the student take a minimum of 5 courses, not all, or all but one, course may be taken from one Program;
- the student submit a proposal conditional to acceptance into the program, and this demonstrates that study of the topic can only be achieved through a multi-disciplinary approach.
