Biological anthropology is undergoing rapid and significant change in the 21st century. Biological anthropologists are developing broader interests beyond traditional themes in academic departments of anthropology, and finding new job opportunities in and outside of academia. Biological anthropologists can be found in medical schools, schools of public health, many companies producing pharmaceuticals and dietary items, and at major government research organizations such as the Smithsonian Institution, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Biological anthropology draws its students from a wide variety of disciplines that include the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities.

Biomedical anthropology is an emerging subdisciplinary area within biological anthropology. It represents the interface between biomedicine and the behavioral and social sciences that shape health status. As such, it does more than give lip service to integrating cross-disciplinary approaches. It represents an educational philosophy that has been recommended as part of an innovative graduate training initiative (1995 Reshaping the Graduate Education of Scientists and Engineers, National Academy Press) implemented by the National Science Foundation (NSF Announcement 98:96).

Biomedical anthropology emphasizes biomedical, biobehavioral, epidemiological and evolutionary approaches to understanding the transmission and dissemination of disease, the cellular and molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis, and the dynamic interaction of biological and sociocultural factors that shape health outcomes.

Uniqueness of Program

Graduates of the M.S. program will be prepared to identify, prevent and solve health problems as well as develop and evaluate health-related programs and policies, especially those affecting rural health populations. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of both part-time and full-time students. Many of our graduates will serve as managers, administrators, re- searchers, and educators. The MS offers graduates a breadth of knowledge they can apply to almost any public health topic, such as: STI prevention; promotion of breast or other cancer screenings; substance abuse prevention; or the promotion of physical activity and nutrition.

Testimonials

“Interning at Cornell Cooperative Extension has given me a look at what Community Health is all about. To work directly with the population in need is not only eye-opening, but extremely rewarding. I really feel that I have grown from this experience in a number of ways.” —Emily Nye, CCE Intern

“My internship at Hospice and Palliative Care of St. Lawrence Valley provided me with unforgettable memories and experiences. The projects I was able to complete while interning at Hospice were things I never dreamed possible. The amazing and courageous staff deserves all the thanks in the world for what they do on a day-to-day basis. This internship was truly a once in a lifetime experience.” —Kaley Arsenault, Hospice Intern
