Department of Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humanity. By investigating the diversity of cultures across the globe and studying human evolution and the ancient past, we invite students to entertain new perceptions on what makes life meaningful. Students delve into Homo sapiens’ context in communities to uncover a rich understanding of the human story.

The study of anthropology provides a solid foundation for careers in a wide range of areas such as international studies, global and community health, field archaeology, social work, museum work, education and business.

As the Department Chair, I invite you to look beyond the world as you have known it and explore the worlds that have been created in other times and places.
