The Department of Anthropology at UBC advances the study and constructive understanding of human diversity and commonality across the globe and throughout the long span of human existence. We pursue this aim through excellence in research, teaching, and community collaboration, grounded in multiple analytical and interpretive methods that share a commitment to field-based inquiry. The Department has particular strengths in anthropological archaeology in the Americas and China, collaborative research with Aboriginal peoples in Canada and globally, and critical museology.
