Undergraduate Program

Anthropology focuses on understanding the diversity of human culture, both past and present, and how humans interact with each other and their environment.  Topics range from the evolution of the human species, the chemical analysis of ancient human bone, solving community-based problems in contemporary society, and understanding the nature of corporate culture.

We offer undergraduate courses in the six thematic areas of anthropological research that intersect all sub-disciplines:
