Students in the program are required to take both theoretical and practical courses in all three of these sub-fields. This broad approach introduces the student to the whole field of anthropology in order to emphasize the holistic theory which underlies all these ways of studying human development and culture.
Anthropology students explore our cultural practices and biological complexities in the past and present, and in globally specific contexts.
In the University of Waterloo’s Anthropology program, students gain an 'anthropological sensibility' that builds knowledge and skills for life and work beyond the University. In a rapidly changing, increasingly globalized world, it is critical to understand the unions, disjunctures, and discursive changes over time, between species, and among cultural practices.
UWaterloo Anthropology students learn techniques of research design, field methods, and have fieldwork opportunities that bring classroom learning to life.
