Prospective graduate students have been writing me for advice about doctoral and masters programs in visual anthropology. Since my previous entry on this topic is outdated, I've decided to update it to the best of my current knowledge.
- USA: San Francisco State University, MA in Visual Anthropology
- USA: University of Southern California - Masters in Visual Anthropology
Ph.D. Granting Institutions with Visual Anthropology Programs/Faculty
- USA: Harvard University - Sensory Ethnograph Lab and Secondary PhD in Film and Visual Studies

Note that the wikipedia entry on Visual Anthropology also has a very useful list of visual anthropology programs.
I'll keep updating this list, if you have any suggestions, additions, corrections, feel free to e-mail me or drop a comment below. Last updated: 2009/10/23
