Anthropology is the study of peoples and cultures, and what it means to be human: in all parts of the world, both present and past. It is unique among the social sciences given its holistic scope.

The Department of Anthropology provides undergraduate training (major or minor) in anthropology with emphases in Archeology, Cultural, and Physical and Forensic Anthropology. Fieldwork opportunities through the Institute of Public Anthropology, our department's Internship program, and our Archeology field school provide multiple opportunities for students to gain hands on career and research experiences in many areas and ongoing faculty projects.
