Anthropology is the cross-cultural study of humanity in all its facets—biological, cultural and linguistic—and over time. Our small but exceptional program produces theoretically sophisticated practitioners at the intersection of health, politics and the environment, regardless of time or place.
We offer a terminal master's program with concentrations in medical anthropology, sustainability and political ecology, archaeology, and biological anthropology.
Technically skilled undergraduates and graduates must be capable of critically evaluating not just the methods, but also the concepts and assumptions that drive current thinking and scientific research.
The department's training provides entry to a variety of careers in archaeology, education, community service, public health, public administration, development, and international affairs and business.
