Anthropology isn’t one of the more popular online graduate courses. 
But, there are some universities that offer it.  I have listed some
that I found for you.  Not all of them had all of the information that
you needed upfront.  But, I listed them anyway just in case.

Something else you might want to consider is a British Research
Doctorate.  Do a google search for that term, also look at for John Bear's book where he spends a lot of
text on the British research doctorate.
