Anthropology Ph.D. Program

Penn State’s doctoral program prepares students for successful careers in archaeology and biological anthropology.  Faculty interests and student opportunities are quite diverse, although all share a commitment to empirically based analyses backed by rigorous quantitative methods.  The department strives to provide students with personally and professionally enriching field and laboratory experiences, typically as part of ongoing research programs, and to produce scholars who will, in turn, make a difference in society, both within academia and outside of it.
