Welcome to the Department of Anthropology! Anthropology is the study of all aspects of humanity with a special focus on understanding the role of culture in human life ways. Anthropology combines themes and perspectives from many different disciplines including biology, psychology, geology, and economy and is a core interdisciplinary field of study.
The Department of Anthropology is nationally recognized as an established program with one of the longest running archaeological field schools in the country and three faculty members in the National Academy of Science. We offer undergraduate (major and minor) and graduate degrees and have special focuses in the fields of Medical Anthropology, Environmental Archaeology, and Globalization and International Development.
