Anthropology is the study of humankind, seeking to understand who we are. This broad discipline includes the study of cultures around the world, remains of past cultures, and the biology of humans and other primates. This knowledge of how we are similar across the world yet investigating the differences among vibrant cultures is critical to studying and helping solve many of the global issues confronting us today. If this area of study interests you, consider enrolling in the Anthropology program.
Students of the Anthropology program develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are required in professions where you examine human data, build research partnerships, provide health services, and work across various disciplines. Upon completing this program, you will be able to bring awareness of human culture, biology, and history to tackle complex issues facing the world today. These in-demand skills are highly valued by employers across a variety of sectors, including government, health and human services, private businesses, cultural resource management, museums, universities, and independent research institutes.
