WMU has a new online graduate application system that allows all students (domestic and international) to submit required information into one system. General application information for the University, as well as specific requirements for individual programs, are captured into this system.

Applicants are asked to include some program-specific information for the Master of Arts in anthropology. Applicants are encouraged to bookmark this information for quick reference while working through the graduate application process.

Thank you for your interest in applying for this graduate program.

Deadline: Applications for graduate study are accepted throughout the year. However, the department strongly prefers that students begin the graduate program in the fall semester (submit by Feb. 1).

Admission to the graduate program is competitive with admissions decisions being based upon a combination of previous academic work, letters of recommendation, prior relevant experiences, and how applicant’s skills and interests match the type of anthropology done in the department. The GRE is not required.
