What You'll Study
You might conjure up the idea of Indiana Jones when thinking of anthropology. Generally, anthropologists study cultures around the world, but there are several ways to approach the topic. That's why we've created a major that explores multiple facets to the field.
You'll conduct "digs" at various archaeological sites within the region. Many have recovered artifacts from ancient tribal cultures and pioneers.
Active student groups, such as the Anthropology Colloquium, help keep the discipline alive outside the classroom. They take trips to museums, dig sites, and national and regional conferences.

One More Thing
Moriah Diglaw, Class of 2016
One of the best parts about the Anthropology program is the faculty. They care so much about each student and spend time trying to make sure everyone has a proper understanding of the work we go over in class. They have extensive knowledge on a broad spectrum of topics, and it really makes the overall experience of being in the classroom that much better."
