Department of Anthropology Programs

Anthropology, the scientific study of humanity from a comprehensive, holistic approach, covers humankind from the earliest times to the present. It includes the major subfields of archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Students learn how different groups live with each other, as well as how human diversity has evolved. As globalization increases, so does the need for anthropologists.
