Department of Anthropology is a community of scholars dedicated to teaching and learning excellence in our field and for our students. Through scholarly work and direct participation in research programs both locally and outside the United States, students study the varied nature of human experience in the cultures of the world. Through this study of people, their lifestyles and how they adapt to cultural change, both past and present, a student is better prepared to comprehend human behavior on local and global levels.

Comparative and evolutionary, scientific and humanistic, anthropology provides a unique opportunity for broadening and integrating one's view of human existence. By attending classes, conducting fieldwork and participating in the research process, students gain an understanding of human cultural heritage, culture change, and cultural diversity in both past and contemporary societies.
