University of Michigan Museum Studies Program

Today’s museums are dynamic institutions playing increasingly important roles in the communities they serve. In addition to being a place for collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting “things,” museums have become vital arenas for learning, exploring and negotiating the complex relationships that people have with the social and natural environments in which they live.

In response to this movement, the museum profession has seen significant growth and greater demand for qualified museum specialists. It is an arena that offers many exciting opportunities for the application of knowledge, skills and critical thinking associated with a variety of disciplines.

Joint Doctoral Program in Social Work and Anthropology

The Joint Doctoral Program in Social Work and Anthropology is a PhD program for students interested in examining social issues using anthropological theories and methods.  Founded in 1957, the Joint Doctoral Program in Social Work and Social Science is the only doctoral program in the nation that allows students to gain social work research training and experience that is rooted in multiple social science disciplines. 

Within the Joint Program in Social Work and Anthropology, students can elect any of four subfields (i.e. Archeological, Biological, Linguistic, and Sociocultural).   As such, the Joint Doctoral Program admits students who are equally committed to Social Work research and to disciplinary expertise in Anthropology.

The Joint Program is individualized and students take varied paths in completing their requirements. Each Joint student will work with mentors/advisors in both Social Work and Anthropology in determining their academic trajectory; while completing coursework and prelim examinations in both areas along with a research internship, teaching experience, and a dissertation that combines the two areas.

If they do not have an M.S.W. at admission, students in the Joint Program  fulfill additional coursework and field placement credits for this degree.
