We prepare students for the social complexity and cultural changes associated with globalization, exploding social media use, and urbanization.  

 

Coming in Fall 2014: The NEW major in Anthropology! The new major emphasizes cultural anthropology, closely engaging urban Anthropology, language and culture, global political economy, cultural formations of inequality and social justice, and active engagement with evidence-based social policy.

 

Our Minor: Students may also minor in Anthropology for those who wish to complement other areas of study.
