In seeking answers to the most basic human questions, anthropologists explore the relationships among the physical, biological, social, technological, symbolic, and moral worlds in which we live. To do this, they employ an interdisciplinary, four-field approach that includes archaeology, sociocultural anthropology, biological/forensic anthropology, and linguistic anthropology, and which draws on many other disciplines in the sciences (social and natural) and the humanities.

Our program will prepare you to think critically and effectively about human history in its broadest sense as well as the many issues facing humanity today. It is an excellent complement to other disciplines, such as economics, history, psychology and sociology, to name just a few.
