Anthropology: The Study of Humankind, Past and Present.
Anthropology is the study of the biology, society, and culture of humans and their nearest biological relatives, past and present. Anthropologists focus on the nature and history of the human condition in all times and in all places, addressing a wide range of evolutionary and behavioral issues of interest to the social and biological sciences.
Whether you're looking to dig in to the past at an archaeological site or wanting to understand the interaction of genders and cultures in current societies, Anthropology offers students a chance to better understand humankind – getting to know the past and present and affecting the future of our world.
