About the Program
The anthropology curriculum is designed to provide a liberal arts education that emphasizes the scientific study of humanity. Three areas of anthropology are covered: cultural anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology.
The goal of the anthropology program is to provide students with a broad understanding of humanity that will be relevant to their professions, their daily lives, and their larger roles in the modern world.
