anthropology

As a multidisciplinary study of humans present and past, anthropology finds its way into many programs and courses. You’ll find opportunities to think deeply about contemporary ways of life and to consider pre-modern and non-industrial human experiences. Anthropology faculty offer instruction and guidance in ethnographic fieldwork: approaches to listening, observing, documenting, and reflecting that will enable you to engage meaningfully with people and topics that matter to their communities. You will combine the study of anthropology with history, psychology, sociology, literature, religion, and biology in integrated and relevant ways.
