There are three research degrees offered in Anthropology and students must have a substantial background in Anthropology to be eligible to enrol in these degrees.

Master of Arts (Research)

The Master of Arts (Research) is designed to develop students’ disciplinary knowledge and research skills through a program of postgraduate coursework (2 units of study) and a supervised research project culminating in a thesis. This degree is suitable for students who have a major in Anthropology but who do not have an Honours degree or equivalent. Enrolment is subject to supervision being available. For further information see http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/arts_PG/research/m_arts.shtml

Master of Philosophy

The Master of Philosophy is a research degree in which students undertake an extended piece of original research, usually involving anthropological fieldwork, which is the basis for an individually supervised thesis. Enrolment is subject to supervision being available. For further information see http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/arts_PG/research/m_philosophy.shtml

Doctor of Philosophy

The Doctor of Philosophy has the most stringent requirements for entry and is subject to supervision being available. Students are required to undertake a major original research project based on anthropological fieldwork, and to write an individually supervised thesis of 80,000 – 100,000 words which makes an original and significant contribution to anthropological knowledge.
