Author: Jessica Baron

The University of Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters will launch a doctoral program in the Department of Anthropology, with the first cohort of students due to enroll in fall 2014.

The new program, says Susan Blum, professor and chair of the department, will focus its curriculum and training on integrative anthropology.

“The strengths of Notre Dame’s anthropology department are in its commitment to multiple approaches to understanding humanity and its diversity, willingness to face big questions, individual excellence in teaching and scholarship, exceptional mentoring of students and engagement beyond academia,” she says.
