The University of Toronto’s Tri-Campus Graduate Department of Anthropology is the largest and most comprehensive department in Canada, and the only one to offer graduate training in five fields of the discipline.
The graduate programs in Anthropology at the University of Toronto seek to strengthen students’ analytical and research skills either for further academic pursuits, or for careers outside of academia. Our programs aim to develop academic specialists within the broad reach of anthropology while maintaining sufficient flexibility for students to pursue new and exciting developments across subdisciplines and traditional disciplinary frontiers.
Over half of all our Ph.D. graduates, are employed in tenure-stream or tenured positions in universities in Canada, United States, Egypt, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, South Africa, Japan, Philippines, Italy, Malaysia, and Australia. About a quarter of our Ph.D. graduates are employed in museums, government agencies, or research and consulting groups in Canada and abroad.
The Graduate Department offers MA, MSc, and PhD degrees in Anthropology. Within these degree programs, students may pursue research training and courses of instruction in archaeology, linguistic anthropology, medical anthropology, evolutionary anthropology, and social-cultural anthropology.
