The Department of Anthropology offers a course of study leading to the degree of Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy.
University resources of particular benefit to anthropology students include: the McPherson Library, which is the second largest research library in B.C. and the largest on Vancouver Island, providing one of the best book/student ratios in Canada; the University Computing Centre; research centers in Addictions Research, Aging, Asia Pacific Initiatives, Bio-Medical Research, Global Studies, Religion and Society, Youth and Society; and the Anthropology department's archaeology and comparative faunal laboratories. Students interested in Northwest North America will find the important collections and holdings of the Royal British Columbia Museum and Provincial Archives of British Columbia very helpful.
Financial assistance: well-qualified applicants are eligible for a University Fellowship. The maximum value of this in 2009/2010 was $13,500. Several teaching assistantships are available, usually ranging from $4,564 to $5,935 for eight months' work. Additional TA-ships are also often available for the summer term. Teaching assistants are eligible for additional top-up funding from the Faculty of Graduate Studies (a maximum of $4,400, but generally $1,000 to $4,000 per year). There are also several awards that provide small numbers of exceptional or financially eligible students with additional funds. These awards include, but are not limited to, the Sara Spencer Research Award in Applied Social Science, the Mrs. Annie Greskiw Graduate Award, Maritime Awards Society of Canada Graduate Fellowships, and the Martlet Chapter Iode Graduate Scholarship for Women. Graduate Fellowships are also available on a competitive basis from federal government funding agencies (NSERC, CIHR, SSHRC). The university awards a supplement of $4,000 to students who win a federal fellowship.
