Department of Anthropology

Welcome to Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of human origins and evolution, present conditions of human life, and future prospects. It considers human beings as biological and social entities, and seeks to explain both diversities and commonalities of peoples and cultures.

Undergraduates get an overview of human life while being introduced to a variety of skills and practical research methods.

Our minor program provides an introduction to the field with courses such as Culture and the Human Experience and Issues in Human Evolution.

Finally, our Master's program offers a breadth of opportunities with three different opportunities for specialization:
