Are you planning a career in the health sciences or allied health sciences but want to develop your knowledge and skills in medical anthropology? You could earn a master’s degree in medical anthropology in just one year.

The Department of Anthropology at Case Western Reserve University offers an intensive, one-year Master of Arts in Medical Anthropology and Global Health that provides conceptual, topical and research understanding of the biocultural basis of health and illness and the interface between disease/illness, culture, biology, and society.
