About Tulane University, Academic Centers, Stone Center for Latin American Studies
Tulane's Department of Anthropology offers course work and degrees (BA, BS, MA, and PhD) in all of the major subdisciplines of the field: archaeology, sociocultural anthropology, physical anthropology, and anthropological linguistics. Anthropology at Tulane began with the establishment of the Middle American Research Institute http://www.tulane.edu/~mari and its associated library in 1924. The first full-time teacher of the subject was appointed to the Department of Sociology in 1938. The first B.A. Degree in anthropology was awarded in 1949, the first M.A. degree in 1954, and the first PhD. in 1962. The Department separated from Sociology in 1968, and now, after more than a quarter century of independent existence, it is recognized both within the university and within the wider profession as a center of academic strength, particularly for the study of the anthropology of Mesoamerica.
