The Anthropology program from University of Maryland maintains a strong focus on the practical uses and applications of anthropological knowledge, and faculty members and alumni have played important roles in the development of the field of applied anthropology


Anthropology is the study of people—their origins, adaptations and ecology, distribution, customs, languages, and social and religious beliefs.

Faculty applied interests in such areas as the environment, health, and heritage are reflected in both undergraduate and graduate course offerings.

A strong background in anthropology is an asset in preparing for a variety of careers and professional opportunities. The faculty at the University of Maryland’s Department of Anthropology is uniquely qualified to provide undergraduate majors with advice and assistance related to both their academic and career interests. The  Anthropology program from University of Maryland also provides a variety of study abroad experiences, summer field schools, and internship opportunities—all of which can contribute significantly to a student’s understanding of the discipline.

Undergraduate majors are encouraged to focus in one of three subdiscipline areas in anthropology: archaeology, biological anthropology, or cultural anthropology.
