Why study Anthropology at UIC?

Our faculty share core research interests on a wide range of topics and are specifically focussed on issues related to urbanism, environment and landscapes, health and mobilities in the present and past. The Graduate program provides opportunities for students to expand their interests through Terminal MA and PhD degrees in the three major subfields of Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and Sociocultural Anthropology.

The competitive admissions process is committed to selecting a diverse range of students whose backgrounds and interests will complement the broader research interests of the department. Each year we typically admit between 6-12 students for the incoming cohort.
