What is an MA in Medical Anthropology? This type of program expands on anthropology by specializing in the study of health and illness in populations throughout time. Scholars analyze human adaptation and development while considering health care and disease risks of the time to reach conclusions. The program often includes theoretical, modern and historical rationale to prevent and treat health problems in the present. Some programs offer learning integration into communities or field training to engage scholars with the community around them.

An MA in Medical Anthropology offers other often-in-demand skills applicable outside of the field, such as management skills. Cultural understanding and an anthropological worldview can help in understanding other people’s perspectives to reach a mutual understanding or find solutions to interpersonal problems.

A master’s degree offers extensive knowledge from expert educators, but it comes at a cost. There is no specific universal cost for an education, but each university can offer a personalized estimate of total costs to attend for both regional and international program participants.

With the knowledge of public health, careers can be found for graduates with an MA in Medical Anthropology in several medical fields. Health educators apply extensive knowledge of anthropology to teach others about disease and how it’s spread. Policy analysts and outreach coordinators use analytics to reach out and take action to contain outbreaks. Epidemiologists evaluate prevalent disease samples and aim to prevent public health situations by utilizing the teachings of past outbreaks.
