Program Overview

The University of Florida’s (UF) Certificate Program in Research Methods in Anthropology is available through the university’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and is intended for anthropologists and those seeking to become anthropologists, who are looking to strengthen their skills in research methods. This program’s entirely distance learning format was designed for working professionals who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. This program aims to create a balance between the maximum convenience and flexibility found in an online certificate program, while maintaining the academic excellence of a traditional certificate from an educational institution.

UF’s Anthropology Department believes that social researchers should be skilled in the full range of methods for collecting and analyzing data, and this online graduate level certificate program is aimed to help researchers choose the right tools, emphasizing the integration of complementary applications of quantitative and qualitative data analysis. The coursework consists of four classes, or twelve credits, and all of these courses emphasize skills in collecting and analyzing the many types of data that anthropologists work with on a regular basis. Some of the courses students take through this program span topics such as Geospatial Analysis in Cultural Anthropology, Text Analysis in Cultural Anthropology, Network Analysis in Cultural Anthropology, and Video Analysis in Cultural Analysis.
