"The Department of Anthropology at the College of William and Mary offers strong programs in undergraduate and graduate studies. Our faculty and focus reach around the world, fostering an interdisciplinary culture, with long-standing links to the American Studies Program, Department of History, Music, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. It offers course work in all four subfields of anthropology and in all the major geographic areas of the world."[1]

"The graduate program focuses on anthropological ways of looking at the past. The Department confers the M.A. and M.A./Ph.D. in Historical Archaeology and the M.A/Ph.D. in Historical Anthropology."[2]

"Advanced studies in historical archaeology and historical anthropology enable a broad spectrum of perspectives onto our past -- an enriching experience for undergraduates and advanced students alike. The Anthropology Department also is partnered with the Institute for Historical Biology, the American Indian Research Center, the Werowocomoco Research Group, and the William and Mary Center for Archaeological Research."[3]
