The Department of Anthropology and Archaeology admits graduate students at the Masters and doctorate level. For information about admission at the University of Calgary: Graduate StudiesAnthropology, and Archaeology

All my graduate students work at BFMS. I tend to select students who have an undergraduate degree in anthropology or in biology, and who have already some field or some research experience. As of 2018, I will limit my intake of graduate students. 

Current Graduate Students

Tianna Rissling MA student.

My research is looking at the possible existence of abrupt weaning as a counter strategy to infanticide in ursine colobus monkeys.
