Introduction

Our educational program is based on the premise that Anthropology more than any other discipline provides insights into who we are, how we became this way, and what our future might be. The more students understand about both the past and current nature of biological and cultural diversity, the better able they are to cope with complex problems and make meaningful contributions to society locally, nationally and internationally. Whether undergraduates choose to pursue graduate training in anthropology or some other field, or move directly into the workforce, we seek to provide them with a broad education by offering large and small lecture classes and a variety of laboratories and field classes across the concentrations of anthropology. Our graduate degrees prepare students to follow either academic or applied careers in Anthropology.
