Overview

From the day of humanity over two million years ago to the latest breaking technological revolution, from the Arctic to the tip of Tierra del Fuego (South America), anthropology introduces students to the variety and complexity of contemporary and past human societies and cultures. 

We offer a bachelor degree in Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. The goal of anthropology is to make sense out of that complexity and to understand the processes that have shaped and continue to shape the lives of people around the world.

Given our rapidly changing world and ever increasing interaction with people form different places, with different ideas and different ways of doing things, an understanding and appreciation of those changes is more important now that ever before. Anthropology, with its focus on a perspective and methods to gain a greater understanding. Government and non-government organizations, businesses and the public in general turn to anthropology to answer questions of culture differences, of culture change and our place in the biosphere.
