Anthropology studies the full range of the human experience from human origins and past cultures to traditional and modern societies. While anthropology documents human behavior and cultural patterns around the world, it is also concerned with assisting people who navigate today’s complex and changing world. We are committed to helping our students become well-rounded global citizens capable of investigating, navigating, translating, doing business, and improving conditions across borders, oceans, and cultures. With a focus on a holistic, intercultural communication and understanding, our program provides students with technical skills while instilling the ability to be flexible and ready to learn new skills.
