Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences.
Anthropologists are highly specialized in their research interests, yet remain generalists in their observations of the human condition and advocate for a public anthropology that is committed to bringing knowledge to broad audiences.
The Department of Anthropology at The University of Tulsa offers a BA degree and certificate in museum studies. The hallmark of our department is the individual relationships between students and faculty and the engagement of all students in cutting-edge research. We offer state-of-the-art labs, which allow us to combine experimental archaeological analyses with extensive fieldwork worldwide.
