The UNH Anthropology department emphasizes socio-cultural anthropology and archaeology. Our faculty members explore global economy, religion, political structures, “racial” identities and ethnicities, gender hierarchies, human interactions with other species, and health and illness. They use cutting-edge technologies and pursue collaborative and interdisciplinary research. These faculty members have conducted research in different countries including Uzbekistan, South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Belize and the United States.
Our department provides a well-rounded education: it trains students how to ask better questions about how the world, conduct scientific analysis and interpretation, and how to communicate more effectively. With faculty from four countries and three continents, and its inherently international perspective, the major provides students with an expanded socio-historic horizon and a deeper understanding of the increasingly global nature of our world.
