Why choose our Anthropology program?

The study of anthropology exposes students to cultural similarities and differences worldwide with respect to kinship, marriage, economics, politics, religion and social equality. The program introduces students to the physical evolution of humans from the earliest hominid forms to modern groups. Drawing from biological, geological and anthropological data, the various forces acting upon human evolutionary development are explained. As students advance through the program, completing the anthropology courses, they are introduced to the study of archaeology and learn the techniques and methods used at excavation sites which contribute data that supports the cultural life of past societies.
