Program Overview

The objective of the dual MA/MSN program is to provide qualified and motivated students with the unique combination of cross-cultural expertise in medical anthropology and clinical expertise in nursing.  This will position students to pursue a clinical career and/or to conduct research on a broad range of issues, with emphasis on the relationship between medicine, ecology, subsistence variables, population dynamics, and disease epidemiology; and to identify and analyze sociocultural impediments to the successful introduction of effective functioning and evaluation of health care programs in diverse contexts. Applicants should make separate application for admission to the School of Nursing and the Department of Anthropology (through the School of Graduate Studies).

Interested students should contact the Director of Graduate Program in the Department of Anthropology to discuss the program requirements.
