Candidates for admission into the M.A. Programme should meet all Graduate School qualification criteria such as bachelors’ degrees with second degree honors (lower) or better. The programme is intended for intelligent students with university degrees and/or work experience in other areas (nursing, journalism, social work, engineering, finance, teaching or other occupations) eager to learn about anthropology. In unusual cases, students with lower grades may be considered for the programme, but they must offer a justification in their application. Students who do not meet the University’s requirement in English should have a TOEFL score of 550 or above (213 or above for the computer-based test). Past academic performance, work experience, references, motivation and language ability will all be considered in the admission decision.
Applications will be considered in four rounds, and we encourage students to apply early:
Application results will be posted on the homepage of the Graduate School from mid-November 2019 to mid-March 2020. Successful applications, in normal case, will receive the offer letter latest by the end of May. Applicants will not be informed separately if their applications are not successful.
