Anthropology is concerned with everything that is human, in all parts of the world, both present and past. It is unique among the social sciences in its holistic scope.

The Department of Anthropology provides undergraduate training (major or minor) in anthropology with emphases in Archeology, Cultural and Physical Anthropology. Fieldwork opportunities through the Institute of Public Anthropology and our Archeology field school provide multiple opportunities for students to gain hands on research in ongoing investigations.
