About

The PhD in Anthropology at The New School, open to those who have completed the Anthropology MA at The New School for Social Research, prepares students for creative independent research and teaching.

Overview

At the PhD level, we encourage students to develop their own theoretical and geographic specializations through participation in a required sequence of three doctoral proseminars and tutorial work with individual faculty.

Key Features 

  • Doctoral students in Anthropology at The New School are required to attend the bimonthly department workshop. The content of the workshop is determined by students in consultation with workshop faculty, and has included presentations by anthropology faculty on such topics as publishing, grant-writing, and job talks; as well as presentations by students of research proposals, dissertation chapters, and reports from the field. 
  • The workshop is also often the catalyst for student-organized themed conferences. In addition, doctoral students are required to attend the department colloquia series of invited speakers.

Programme Structure

  • PhD candidates must earn 30 credits in addition to the 30 credits taken in the Anthropology MA program, for a total of 60 credits. 
  • Students in the Anthropology MA program may apply for entry into the PhD program upon successful completion of the MA written examination and submission to the department of a brief written proposal indicating an area of future research.
