Anthropology

Programs

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.
