What You’ll Learn

You'll explore through ethnographic fieldwork, archaeological excavation, biological lab work, and visual and material cultural analysis what it means to be human.

Our students and faculty collaborate closely to learn and improve our knowledge of human variation and how this information can be used to confront the complex issues we are dealing with in the world today.
