The Department of Anthropology offers a wide range of courses to help one learn how to talk about people: people in the past, in the present, and in the future.


By combining a number of subfields (biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, and applied anthropology), anthropology bridges the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities, thus providing students with a broad comparative approach to the study of humanity the world over, both past and present. Some of our courses deal with the biological origins, evolution, and variations of humankind; others examine how we "know" about the distant human past; while others focus on the comparative study of contemporary world cultures. The department offers courses that support programs in the social, behavioral, and life sciences.
