The anthropology curriculum includes courses in biological anthropology, which deals with the biological evolution of the human beings and with the nature and significance of physical variation among human populations; archeology, which deals with the recovery and analysis of cultural remains of human populations that lived in the past; and sociocultural anthropology, which focuses on socially learned and transmitted systems of knowledge of contemporary human populations with special emphasis on non-Western societies and cultures. The anthropology curriculum provides a comprehensive, well-rounded knowledge of the field to students in our major and minor programs, and many of our courses are requirements or electives in other degree programs.
