Anthropology explores the human journey. Dig it!

Students of anthropology explore the unity and diversity of human experience. Through courses that cover a wide range of societies throughout the world, we investigate the human condition, past and present. Introductory courses provide an overview of the fields of anthropology: social and cultural anthropology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and linguistics. More advanced courses provide the opportunity for students to pursue intensive study of particular topics in cross-cultural perspective. The department emphasizes critical thinking and writing skills and encourages close faculty/student contact in seminar courses at the upper level. Students have the opportunity to take courses in other departments that complement specific foci in anthropology.

The Anthropology Department offers both a major and a minor in Anthropology.
