Topics that will be covered include foraging theory, prey choice, the nature of the archaeofaunal record, units of quantification, taphonomy, ecological concepts and theory, vertebrate taxonomy and natural history, and skeletal preparation. Students complete a problem-oriented research project based on the analysis of one of several provided archaeofaunal assemblages. Results of the research project will be presented at a professional zooarchaeological conference held at the end of the course.

First Thursday – Jan 15 2015 – Easter Island

FirstThursdays PPT Terry Hunt Jan 15_ 2015

The PSU Anthropology Department and the Anthropology Student Association invite you to attend our Archaeology “First Thursdays” presentation on Thur Jan 15 at 4 pm, Cramer Hall 41.  [we recognize this is really the third Thursday…..but with this month’s academic schedule, we adjusted things a bit).

Dr. Terry Hunt (University of Oregon) will present, Transporting Easter Island’s Giant Statues

How were the multi-ton statues of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) transported over a rugged landscape to reach every corner of the island? Did carving and moving statues contribute to the ancient society’s downfall, or help to sustain it?  Based on more than a decade of archaeological research on Rapa Nui, Professor Terry Hunt addresses these questions in this presentation. Perhaps Rapa Nui has a lesson for us today, but Hunt provides compelling evidence that it is not the one that has been so popular for many years.

The larger context for Dr. Hunt’s presentation is found in his recent book, The Statues that Walked and other recent publications.

Master’s degree options in applied anthropology

The University of North Texas offers several Master’s degree options in applied anthropology:

  • Master of Arts in Applied Anthropology
  • Master of Science in Applied Anthropology
  • Dual Degree in Applied Anthropology and Public Health (MS/MPH).


The MA/ MS degrees are offered in either face-to-face or online formats.  Our online Master’s program is the oldest and most established in the nation; it was designed to allow professionals from around the world to obtain a top-quality education in Anthropology.  Students regularly participate from the US, Uganda, Cambodia, France, Argentina, China, Indonesia, and more.


The department emphasizes the use of anthropology to solve problems and improve people’s lives. Our central goal is to provide students with the knowledge they will need to undertake informed thoughtful action, whether as street-level practitioners, administrators, agency-based researchers, or program evaluators.  Our graduates tend to work in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, in local, regional and international contexts, but also have excellent success when they choose to go on to PhD programs.


Students engage in multiple applied projects as part of their training. This includes class projects for client organizations, or working with faculty as part of their applied thesis project. Examples of recent clients that UNT Anthropology students have worked with include the Microsoft, Catholic Charities, NASA, Children’s Hospital of Dallas, the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, the Kayapo Project, Benetech, Puente, The Foundation for African Medicine and Education, and more.


All of our faculty are applied cultural anthropologists, with geographical interest including Africa, Oceania, North America, Latin America, South Asia, and Europe.


Finally, we have several mechanisms available to support graduate students, from in-state tuition, Teaching Assistantships, Research Assistantships, and scholarships.
