Anthropology

Explore cultural contact, diffusion, transformation and resilience in a world of rapidly increasing connections.

Anthropology is devoted to the study of human cultural diversity through time and around the world. Its cross-cultural approach helps students not only appreciate diversity, but reflect back on the unstated assumptions of their own cultures. By making the foreign familiar, and the familiar foreign, anthropology helps us make sense of the human condition.  But diversity is not fixed. It is ever changing, always in flux. Anthropology explores cultural contact, diffusion, transformation and resilience in a world in which connections are increasing at a rapid pace
