Academic and Career Advising
Anthropology is the study of humanity. Anthropology is distinguished from other disciplines by its emphasis on a holistic and evolutionary approach to the study of humans. Anthropologists consider culture, history, language, and biology essential for a complete understanding of humankind. The Anthropology Department provides a wide variety of courses that range from general surveys to specialized topics. The program goes far beyond an emphasis on coverage and content; it is designed to teach students to think critically and communicate effectively. Additionally, most core course requirements carry the General Education designation. This means that this program is also a vehicle for students to broaden their perspectives and deepen their understandings of the world around them.
