Cultural anthropologists study the patterns of socially transmitted cultural beliefs and practices in contemporary human societies. Linguistic anthropologists study the languages and communication patterns of societies around the world. Archaeologists study material culture to assist them in their reconstruction of past cultural systems. Physical anthropologists study the biological variation of past and present human populations within an evolutionary framework.
The UNI anthropology program provides students with a solid grounding in these four fields of anthropology. Our courses offer hands-on experience with the techniques of linguistic anthropology, forensic anthropology, archaeology, qualitative research, and museum studies.
Students have the opportunity to study with professors with expertise in medical anthropology, linguistic anthropology, forensic anthropology, archaeology of North America, and the study of religion, in addition to areal expertise in China, Japan, Africa, Mesoamerica, and Native North America. We encourage internships, student research, and study abroad. If you're fascinated by human differences and why humans behave the way we do, then anthropology is the major for you!
