What You’ll Learn

Human behavior — what is it? Why and how does it vary so much across the planet and through time? Our faculty will help to prepare you to address the problems of the 21st century through a variety of means.

You'll explore through ethnographic fieldwork, archaeological excavation, biological lab work, and visual and material cultural analysis.

An anthropology degree could take you anywhere — literally! Work on an archaeological excavation in Petra, Jordan, study food and culture in Greece, or choose to explore many other hands-on opportunities.

"The availability of hands-on learning experiences, internships, and field schools gives students the opportunity to become involved in research and learn things that could not be learned in a classroom."
