Anthropology

Department Chair:
Ann Bragdon

Anthropology is the study of human variation over space and time. This allows us to study living cultures from around the world (Cultural Anthropology) as well as ancient ones (Archaeology). We also study human biological development and variation (Physical Anthropology). Anthropology is unique because it provides a holistic view of the human experience (both nature and nurture) and it prepares students to be successful in an increasingly interconnected global society.
