USask launches first practicing anthropology master’s program in Canada

The University of Saskatchewan has launched a practicing anthropology master’s program, which the university says is the first of its kind in Canada. Graduates will be provided with hands-on training as they prepare for careers as anthropologists in the private and public sectors and will have the opportunity to complete a project on behalf of a real-world client. “What we (anthropologists) bring, which is unique to our discipline, is the understanding of human behaviour in a real-world context,” said USask professor and program coordinator Dr James Waldram. Waldram explained that anthropologists’ insights into how people use and interact with products and services, as well as cross-cultural understanding and communication, is particularly appealing to private businesses.
