Department of Anthropology

Anthropology is a holistic, interdisciplinary science of humanity. It is the study of people—their origins, adaptations and ecology, distribution, customs, languages, and social and religious beliefs. Anthropological study includes human genetics as well as personality and society, the prehistoric past as well as the global present, indigenous peoples as well as cosmopolitan migrants, the customs of ancient civilizations as well as the beliefs of peoples today and the study of our evolutionary relatives, the non-human primates.
