We provide students anthropological knowledge and critical thinking skills through teaching, mentoring, and conducting both scholarly and applied research. Anthropology is a means to enhance our understanding of the human condition by integrating historical, cultural, and biological perspectives. Our faculty and students are committed to the practice of anthropology as a critical social science that appreciates human diversity and challenges global inequities.
The four field and integrative approach to the study of the human condition includes classes in: cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology.
Through teaching, research, and example we aim to broaden our appreciation of human diversity past and present; to explore issues of cultural and biological change; and to gain awareness of and affect the conditions that give rise to social differences and inequalities.
