Department of Anthropology

Discover Your Focus

Graduate Programs

Our Department is the ideal place to do Master's and Doctoral work. We offer the range of specialized seminars needed for strong graduate-level training, but are a small and collegial department so that students and faculty experience the type of intellectual interaction, supervision, and research collaboration that makes graduate work exciting.

Undergraduate Programs

Whether you are a current or future student at McMaster considering Political Science as an undergraduate degree or taking only one course for interest, you will find that our Department offers an undergraduate curriculum that is both diverse in scope and high in quality.


While the department covers all the main fields in Political Science, we also have research expertise and knowledge in a number of research clusters including: climate and sustainability; critical international relations; gender and politics; globalization; global political economy; labour issues; politics of representation; social and health policy.
