Are you curious about human societies and how they’ve evolved over time? This Anthropology course at Trent University  is the program for you.

Visit the official programme website for more information


Anthropology is the study of humankind, from the earliest peoples to our contemporary digital society. Learn about different peoples, languages, and cultures from around the world and across time as you study the four principal fields of the discipline – archaeological, biological, cultural, and linguistic anthropology. Here in close-knit classes, you’ll explore the extraordinary variability in human adaptation, organization and belief systems, and discover the common circumstances that unite us.

  • Get your hands dirty on a global scale through our archaeological field schools in Belize, Greece, or right here on campus in Ontario
  • Explore the evolution of human beings as both physical and social creatures, from the first tool-makers to the modern global population
  • Learn how to communicate more effectively by understanding other people’s perspectives and priorities
  • Study different cultures firsthand through a year abroad program in virtually any country – Ghana, Thailand, France... the choice is yours
