About Us

Our faculty share an interest in the holistic study of humans and a curiosity about the varieties of human experience. We believe that such an understanding forms an integral part of an undergraduate liberal education, and that the application of insights gained from such an understanding will contribute critical elements to the solution of contemporary medical, social, economic, and political problems. Our Department works across several broad areas of concentration, including Cultural Anthropology; Experimental Anthropology; Human Rights; Medical Anthropology; New World Archaeology; and Old World Archaeology. Our area strengths include Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, North America, and Southwest Asia. Our faculty has also worked in Europe, South and Southeast Asia, and Oceania. We offer extensive expertise in many research methods in ethnology and archaeology. Our Department is part of The Higher Education Opportunities Act.
