The purpose of the Graduate Program in Anthropology at Yale is the development of creative scholars and scientists who will teach or otherwise apply their knowledge and skills within one or more of the traditionally recognized fields of anthropology. This goal may be realized, we believe, by encouraging and stimulating students to do original and creative research as early as possible in their careers. To ensure the attainment of these goals, the Department admits only a small number of graduate students each year and assists each one to develop and follow a flexible program designed to meet his or her own needs.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
