Department of Anthropology
As an anthropology major, you will learn about human cultural and biological differences over time. We are focused on understanding the social, environmental, political, and economic systems in which humans operate. You will participate in hands-on training and have opportunities to explore interdisciplinary field and laboratory research. Our graduate program prepares students for academic as well as non-academic careers. The MA offers optional specializations in health and well-being, professional methods and techniques, humans and the environment, international development, and resilience of social ecological systems. The PhD program sits at the intersection of anthropology and geography where students apply geographic methods to anthropological questions.
