Department of Anthropology

Human behavior – what is it?  Why and how does it vary so much across the planet and through time? The Department of Anthropology at The College at Brockport studies human behavior in both the past and present, through sociocultural, archaeological, and biological approaches that are holistic, cross-cultural, and evolutionary.  Whether through ethnographic fieldwork, archaeological excavation, biological lab work, or visual and material cultural analysis, our students and faculty collaborate closely to improve knowledge of human variation, and better prepare students to address the problems of the 21st century.

The Anthropology Department offers a 39-credit major, an 18-credit minor, and an 18-credit interdisciplinary minor in museum studies and public history. 

 

Dr. Ramsay is directing an archaeological field school in the summer of 2015 at Petra, Jordan.  If you are interested please check out the syllabus!
