Our Undergraduate Program provides cross-cultural knowledge, critical thinking, and practical hands-on skills toward understanding the diversity of human experience through the anthropological subfields of archaeology, cultural anthropology, and biological anthropology. Students benefit from small classes in upper division major courses, one-on-one contact with faculty, and a broad range of course offerings.
The Anthropology Major and Minor provide excellent preparation for postgraduate training and/or careers in applied anthropology, museum work, public and contractual archaeology, education, forensic science, law, health/medicine, international business, marketing, human services, tourism and other fields that require an understanding of human diversity and adaptability.
Our newly renovated anthropology lab offers students the opportunity to learn lab methods in archaeological and biological anthropology.

Professor Neal Keating participated in an Expert Meeting on peace sustainability at Columbia University on October 23, organized through the Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict, and Complexity, part of the Earth Institute at Columbia. The expert meeting was convened to discuss and examine the design of a new approach to modeling sustainable peace systems at local to global scales, that makes use of non-linear systems of causality that are grounded in temporalities of historical memory, future expectations, and the current existence of conflict resolution mechanisms and peace-promoting practices.
