Admission Requirements

Preparing your application to graduate studies at York University and/or other interested universities requires research and planning. Some students start preparing their plans for graduate studies as early as two years before they submit their application. Consider the following information below to help guide you through a successful application process.

Graduates with an honours degree in Anthropology or a related discipline with at least a "B+" average in the last two years of study, may be admitted to the MA program. Applicants with a "B" average may be considered only if they can offer exceptional ("B+" or better) grades in anthropology courses.

We welcome applications from students with a Master’s Degree in Social or Cultural Anthropology with at least a "B+" average. We will consider applicants with a Master's Degree in a related discipline who have a strong background in anthropology through coursework or supervised research.
