Anthropology @ NUS

The National University of Singapore does not have a major, minor, department or any other institutionally recognized position for anthropology as a discipline. Anthropology does appear in the names or descriptions of some courses. There are also well over a dozen faculty members, mainly in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, who hold PhD's in anthropology. This page is devoted to compiling information on anthropology at NUS.
