The Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences (IDPAS) harnesses the considerable strengths of University faculty in various departments who possess research expertise in areas related to anthropology. Since its inception in 1982, the IDPAS has been an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental program. The IDPAS currently draws upon faculty from the departments of Anatomical Sciences, Anthropology, Asian and Asian-American StudiesEcology and EvolutionGeosciencesHistory, Sustainability Studies and from the  Turkana Basin Institute. This interdepartmental structure gives the IDPAS a uniquely broad academic character that provides a comprehensive graduate training and research environment.
