The MA and PhD Manuals contain information for your graduate study in the Department of Anthropology at UAF. Please use these manuals and the checklists at the end of each manual for planning your degree. The Checklists provide all required components of your degree, including progress milestones that are part of your annual report. Funding decisions are based partly on your progress in the program.
If you wish to be considered for funding, ALL application materials must be received by the UAF Office of Admissions (US Students or International Students) AND the internal funding application must be submitted to the Anthropology Department by January 15. For returning students, TA renewal forms must be submitted by 15 October for Spring TAs and 15 January for Fall (next academic year) TAs. These departmental deadlines are different from those listed on other UAF web sites.
Renewal is not automatic: new and continuing students must reapply EACH SEMESTER for a TAship and will be re-ranked for funding at that time. MA students are limited to two years of departmental funding and PhD students are limited to three years of departmental funding. Mid-year applicants will not be considered for funding but may apply by the January 15 deadline for funding for the next academic year.
