Degrees and Programs
Anthropology is the multifaceted study of humans and their ways of life from a global and evolutionary perspective. Students in anthropology learn about the self as well as other ethnic nationalities as they are shaped by biological evolution, ecological constraints, political history, and sociological conditioning. The Department of Anthropology offers theoretical and methodological courses in the five sub-disciplines: biological anthropology, prehistory and archaeology, anthropological linguistics, sociocultural anthropology, and applied anthropology. Regional courses on major populations of the world, especially the heritage cultures of North and South America, Asia, and the Middle East, form an important component of the curriculum.
