Welcome

Anthropology is the study of what it means to be human. The discipline is at the crossroads of science and humanities.

Our faculty advance intellectual frontiers, both ancient and modern, through groundbreaking interdisciplinary research, innovative teaching, and community outreach, aimed at bringing insight and understanding to issues of global health and development, migration and borderland communities, and human impacts on and responses to climate change. Anthropology has long been one of the strongest programs at SMU. We help students build their cultural competency, critical thinking, and global skill sets to best prepare them for life after graduation.
