The Department of Anthropology is engaged in the study of what it means to be human in evolutionary and cultural perspectives, drawing on the social and natural sciences, the humanities, and the creative arts. We seek not just to understand what it means to be human, but to apply our knowledge for the betterment of humanity. Our curriculum includes cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, and applied anthropology.

The department values diversity and inclusivity and its mission is: (1) to educate students about the development and diversity of the world’s cultures and biologies, past and present; (2) to teach students the basic theories and methods that underlie anthropological research; (3) to give students practical experience in the use of anthropological knowledge and methods through the pursuit of original ethnographic, archaeological, and/or biological anthropology research, with particular emphasis on applied research; (4) to expose students to contemporary human and cultural issues of significance to their lives and the lives of others; and (5) to impart important skills in critical thinking, writing, research, and analysis that will provide students with the tools to be effective citizens of the global community. The department strives to achieve this mission in the context of a personalized approach to education where faculty members provide small classes, hands-on experiential and cross-disciplinary learning opportunities, and varied possibilities for one-on-one interaction with students.
