Welcome to the Anthropology Major

Anthropology is a truly interdisciplinary major that teaches about human behavior, culture, and social institutions across time and space. Our courses can help you understand how humans have evolved and adapted to a changing physical and social environment. We explore the meanings and struggles over heritage and identity, and the intersections of culture, power and history in diverse parts of the world. In Anthropology, we place a strong emphasis on learning the languages of the communities we study and developing long-term, collaborative relationships with people of different cultures. Join a major that seeks to understand and make a positive impact on communities and the world.
