McMaster Anthropology Society (MAS)


The McMaster Anthropology Society, or MAS, is a recognized and funded club at McMaster University, and it is our responsibility and mission to provide anthropology students at McMaster with the opportunities and tools they need to engage the anthropological community at Mac.

Anthropology demands the open-mindedness with which one must look and listen, record in astonishment and wonder that which one would not have been able to guess. -Margaret Mead

Some of our annual events include:

  • Meet the Department, where students can meet the faculty in an informal setting
  • Careers Night, where presentations and Q&A sessions are held about careers in anthropology outside of the academic world
  • Field School and Grad School Info Nights, where students can learn about opportunities for hands on learning in the field and applying for MA and PhD programs
  • Undergraduate Research Symposium, where undergrad students have a chance to present some of their original work to faculty and peers and have their work published
  • Social events that allow students to get involved in the community and get to know their peers
  • And much more!

Geography and Earth Sciences Society (GESS)


The Geography and Earth Science Society represents the undergraduate students in the School of Geography and Earth Science at McMaster. We do this by running a number of Social, Academic and Networking events where we work with a number of faculty and industrial leaders to bring a variety of research and career opportunities to students. We also work closely with a number of organizations such as the American Association of Petroleum Geology (AAPG) Student Chapter, Geographers Without Borders, and the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO), to run additional events to apply to a larger audience of undergraduate students with a number of differing study interests.
What makes GESS such a unique program society is the fact that we have both Science and Social Science students, which makes the collaboration between students interesting and refreshing. The integration of various streams of geography, environmental and earth sciences makes for exciting events and conversation. We look forward to working together this year to have another fun, and successful year.
