The Anthropology program from the University of Northern Iowa is the study of human cultural and biological variation and change, giving students an appreciation of human diversity. Anthropologists examine all aspects of the human experience to identify, compare and interpret patterns in the data using cultural, biological, linguistic and archaeological perspectives.


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 University of Northern Iowa 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.
