Anthropology means “the study of humans.” We study humans by looking at who we are and where we came from, and by asking a basic question: what does it mean to be human? To answer that question, Anthropology looks at biological and cultural diversity through four fields of study: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Linguistics, and Cultural Anthropology. Our Anthropology students have participated in fieldwork in remote locations around the world, conducted original research projects on fossils, and collaborated with museums on research and curation. Anthropology students have access to our large comparative Primate and human skeletal material as well as our extensive fossil collection. A degree in Anthropology can serve as a foundation for many career paths in the social and biological sciences.
