New "Medical Anthropology" track major in the Anthropology department

November 12, 2017

As of Fall, 2017, Barnard’s Anthropology Department is pleased to now offer a specialized major in Medical Anthropology. This new track follows a similar format to the existing one in Archaeology and has been designed for students who wish to pursue specialized studies in their coursework and senior theses projects in fields relevant to health, illness, suffering, and affliction. The major is grounded in strong theoretical and methodological training in sociocultural anthropology, although other four fields approaches are possible, too.
