Anthropology at the Fort

Anthropology majors at Fort Lewis College practice their skills in the wild. They investigate nearby mountains and canyons, and they study abroad. They venture into archaeological field schools and conduct forensic work. They engage in real-world cultural resource management and gender studies. And by graduation, they develop a critical understanding of human biology, linguistics, and cultures.
