Thank you for your interest in our graduate program, but due to recent budget cuts at the state level that impact all departments at Missouri State University, we will not be accepting students into our graduate program for the 2017-2018 academic year. However, we are in the process of establishing a Graduate Certificate Program in Cultural Resource Management Archaeology, which may be up and running as soon as this fall. Please watch this website for more information or contact Dr. Scott Worman if you are interested in pursuing this possibility or discussing the graduate program (FScottWorman@missouristate.edu).
Following your passion for anthropology at Missouri State
Admission to the Master of Science in Applied Anthropology program at Missouri State is competitive and limited. Only a small number of students can be accommodated. There is no deadline for admission, but you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Applications are considered on a continuous basis throughout the year, although students admitted by March 1st will receive first consideration for financial support for the following academic year.
The application process consists of two stages: application to the Graduate College and application to the anthropology program. Admission into the Graduate College does not guarantee admission into the anthropology program.
