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.

What can you do with a degree in Anthropology?  Anthropology can help you pursue a career in:

  • social justice
  • cultures of sustainability
  • forensic anthropology
  • global health
  • food security
  • evolution of inequality
  • climate change
  • immigration
  • human evolution
  • primate conservation
