About

Our broad approach to anthropology crosses fields of study, departments and schools. 

Our people

Our faculty's expertise spans fields like archaeology, biology, culture and linguistics. They work together both in the research and in their mentorship of current students.

 

Your Focus

Our department has four major areas of focus-cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology and biological anthropology. We encourage each of our students to take courses and pursue research that crosses one or more of these areas. 

 

After Graduation

The critical thinking and problem-solving skills that an anthropology degree gives you prepares you for many different career paths. You can find our students working as:

  • field assistants
  • museum curators
  • exhibit arrangers
  • coroner technicians
  • teachers of English as a foreign language abroad
