Program Goals

The Department of Anthropology provides a holistic program of instruction that gives students a better understanding of human cultural and biological diversity in the past, present, and future. Central to our approach is the preparation of students to effectively conduct anthropological research in any subfield of anthropology as well as to apply anthropological principles to contemporary problems by emphasizing good communication, critical thinking skills, and collaboration. We encourage interdisciplinarity by promoting strong relationships with other departments in the college.
