Masters completed with ethnographic visuals - MA in Anthropology

Students may, if they so choose, make use of film, photography or new media as ethnographic data and/or the medium of presentation for their major research paper (MRP) or master’s thesis.  In this case, the MRP or thesis will conform to the following format:  introduction, methodology, theoretical framework, ethnographic data, analysis, discussion and conclusion.

The thesis committee will ensure that students possess (or will be able to acquire via courses offered in ethnography of new media or visual anthropology) the necessary skills required to complete a high-quality multimedia document.  These criteria must therefore be explicitly included in the thesis proposal for the latter to be approved.
