Combining biology, history and social sciences, anthropology is the only discipline that examines and attempts to understand humankind as a whole.
The Department of Anthropology encourages undergraduate students to actively participate in their education, embrace the interdisciplinary nature of the field and develop a global lens on human diversity.
The Department of Anthropology’s experiential learning programs provide students with an excellent basis to further their life opportunities outside of the university setting.
Anthropology students develop key skills such as critical thinking and cross-cultural fluency that can be applied to a wide variety of industries. While some students pursue graduate training to become professional anthropologists, a degree in anthropology is an excellent foundation for careers in government agencies, museums, health care, business, journalism, teaching and social work.
