The FAU Department of Anthropology provides undergraduate and graduate programs that address critical issues in the field. We are committed to a culturally and intellectually diverse, open environment for the exploration of anthropological issues. There are active faculty-developed research programs in biological anthropology, archaeology, and cultural anthropology. Research areas range from the US and the Caribbean to Central and South America, Africa and Asia. The Department is host to the SE and SW Regional Centers of the Florida Public Archaeology Network.
Internships available in public archaeology for SE and SW Florida as well as other internship opportunities in biological and cultural anthropology throughout the region.
There are graduate teaching assistantships (with tuition waivers) and student-in-residence fellowships awarded competitively.
Specialized lab facilities include: 3-D imaging, lithics imaging, morphometrics, materials processing, PCR/primate genetics, and zooarchaeology.
