What is Anthropology?

Anthropology is the study of human biological and cultural processes. You’ll broaden your perspective and rethink what’s familiar abroad and strange at home through a large range of biological, archaeological, linguistic, and cultural knowledge about humans, past and present, while also developing problem-solving and intercultural communications skills in order to be a well-informed global citizen. You can choose from four concentrations: General Anthropology, Archaeology, Human Evolutionary Biology, and Sociocultural and Linguistic Anthropology.
