Graduate Programs

For those who want anthropology as a central part of their career, graduate school is in order. If you are considering going to graduate school specifically to pursue a career in applied and practicing anthropology, you should know about the Consortium of Practicing and Applied Anthropology programs (COPAA). Programs in the COPAA network specialize in practitioner anthropology, which differ from programs that focus only on anthropology as an academic pursuit.

See the COPAA membership list at https://copaainfo.org

The Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) also provides a list of programs that have an interest in applied anthropology: https://www.sfaa.net/resources/education/

(Note that not all programs on these lists offer graduate degrees.)

For more general information, you can look through the “This is Anthropology” section of the AAA website: http://www.americananthro.org/AdvanceYourCareer/Landing.aspx?ItemNumber=13278&navItemNumber=13327

Welcome To NAPA

NAPA promotes human-centered work applied to practical problems by linking a network of professional anthropologists working across employment sectors.  We support all anthropologists in bringing real solutions to communities, organizations, and policymakers, by offering advocacy, information, networks, mentoring, and continuing education.
