    Anthropology will give you insights to the world while teaching you to think critically and solve problems.

When you study anthropology, you'll have the opportunity to conduct research and fieldwork locally and abroad. Through our interdisciplinary approach to anthropological archaeology (prehistoric and historic), as well as cultural, linguistic and biological anthropology, you’ll learn to appreciate cultural and biological diversity. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
