Students may apply for a non-terminal AM degree (aka ‘Masters in passing’) en route to the PhD degree. Normally, this application is made after a student has passed the general examinations and fulfilled coursework requirements, except for elective courses.
Social Anthropology PhD students must pass the general examination and twelve required four-credit courses before applying for the non-terminal AM. A thesis is not required for the non-terminal AM degree in Anthropology.
Students who do not attain the PhD may be awarded a terminal AM degree when appropriate.
