Courses & Programmes
Masters in Anthropology (M. Sc.) Programme (2 Years)
The Department admits twenty five students at the Post- Graduate level every year. The latest revision was done in 2000 for introduction of the Semester system. The first batch of students under the Semester system was admitted in January 2001. The Post- Graduate syllabus is revised from time to time. Since the beginning of Post- Graduate teaching in 1956, there has been a strong emphasis on field training and research methodology. Every year, the students have to undertake a field programme on the basis of which they are to submit a field report in the previous year / First Semester and a dissertation in the Final Year / Third Semester. Field research training has been a strong point in Post- Graduate teaching in the department.
