Program Description


Anthropology explores the diverse ways in which humans relate to one another and reveals the cultural milieus, political configurations, ways of speaking and environments which people have used to shape their world. Anthropologists learn about humanity in all times and places through the systematic study of human behavior, material culture, and human physiology and evolution. Students will also be challenged to call into question beliefs and behaviors which may seem “natural” or “inevitable” within their own cultures.
