aboutThe 2010 National Research Council assessment of U.S. doctoral programs has placed UC Irvine's Department of Anthropology near the top of the 82 anthropology departments surveyed. UCI anthropology was ranked as in the top eight programs in the nation, ranked closely behind UC Berkeley and UCLA. It is remarkable for a young sociocultural department to be in the company of such established, larger, four-field departments. Based on this assessment, the UC Irvine program sits alongside the prestigious and much larger programs at Harvard, Michigan, Stanford, Chicago, UC Berkeley, UCLA and UC Davis, outranking some of these programs on many of the measures used in the NRC assessment.
