Combined Ph.D. in Anthropology and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS)

The Department of Anthropology is one of five units at Yale partnering with the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality studies to offer new (in 2021) combined training at the doctoral level. Students in this combined program will work with faculty in both units who are committed to feminist and queer inquiry, and to researching gender and sexuality across axes of difference and inequality around the world. The Combined Ph.D. Program in Anthropology and WGSS is open to applicants in any subfield of anthropology (archaeological, biological, or sociocultural/linguistic), and prospective students should refer to those programs as well.
