Overview

We challenge students' assumptions about their cultures by introducing them to societies and social groups whose principles and prejudices are different from their own. As a result, students carry a greater sensitivity to the cultural dimension of human experience in their work and lives. 

The programme

Anthropology majors gain a balanced view of the range of intellectual concerns and research priorities that mark the subdisciplines of cultural anthropology: cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology and anthropological linguistics. We emphasize a commitment to the value of the ethnographic method as a prerequisite to a comparative analysis of human cultures. Direct observation of ongoing social systems and their cultural frameworks is at the forefront of our studies.
