The on-campus master's program offered by UNT's Department of Anthropology was created in 2000 to serve students who wanted to obtain an advanced degree in applied anthropology. Most of our graduate courses are offered in the evening to make the program more accessible for students who work during the day. On-campus students enjoy the small size of each cohort and the opportunities to meet with other students and faculty. The program can be completed in two years. In order to do so, students take three classes each fall and spring semester, for a total of twelve classes, and conduct the thesis research in the summer between the first and second year.

In addition to their geographic expertise, our faculty members have extensive backgrounds in bilingual education, health, migration, race and ethnicity and sustainable communities. Some of their research has explored:
