The principal focus of the Master of Arts Program in Anthropology at California State University, Sacramento is intended for students who plan to continue their graduate studies toward a Ph.D. or pursue careers in the private sector, Foreign Service, education, or government. The program provides general graduate-level training in four interrelated fields: sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Beyond this foundation, each student designs a plan of coursework specific to their post-graduate goals in one of the four subfields. Students are then expected to demonstrate mastery of their subfield by preparing a thesis of original scholarly research.
