The Anthropology Department is comprised of sociocultural anthropologists, biological anthropologists and archaeologists.

We are all are active scholars, with area specializations in Africa, East Asia, Latin America, and modern U.S. society. Our relatively small size allows you to work closely and intensively with professors while allowing for considerable freedom for those students who wish to pursue independent studies.
