Anthropology

Anthropology is an academic discipline that cuts across multiple fields of study. It is the holistic study of humankind from biological, cultural, archaeological, linguistic, and applied perspectives. Anthropologists excel at integrating complex ideas about what it means to be human; they stimulate critical thinking about the human condition; and they encourage scholarly discourse among the variety of paradigms, challenging each other in the continuing search for scientific knowledge.

Students planning a major in anthropology should prepare themselves with undergraduate courses which complement that major. An undergraduate major in anthropology is not intended to be a training program. Since professional anthropologists draw their experiences from a variety of academic backgrounds and personal plans, an anthropology major should consult one of the anthropology professors for advice on courses that will be most valuable. For the non-major anthropology will provide a unique cross-cultural understanding of other peoples.
