Study what it means to be human


About Us
  • What rituals do people in other cultures practice?
  • What does the fossil record tell us about how humans evolved?
  • Why were ancient temples and pyramids built by past peoples?

These are the kinds of topics that anthropologists explore—what it means to be human. Anthropology covers a lot of topics from culture, language, evolution and archaeology, so if you like a broad perspective on humans around the world, then this is the major for you!

"I like to have my students get as much hands-on experience as possible, from doing their own student ethnography projects to digging on our full-scale 'mock' archaeology site on campus."
