Meet our Anthropology Majors and Alumni
Majoring in Anthropology can take you where you want to go!
Anthropology is the study of humans in all their diversity and of cultures of all regions of the world, past and present. It is based on first-hand field experience, whether studying a culture in a distant land, working on an archaeological dig, or observing non-human primates in the wild. Students become acute observers and analysts of human behavior with a critical understanding of their own cultures, traditions, and behaviors as well as human biological and cultural similarities and differences.
