The programme

The Anthropology program at Wheaton College Illinois emphasizes both the particularities of cultural systems and the universality of humans made in the image of God. Our students develop a biblical foundation for understanding social interaction both within American society and across cultures. 

Together, we pursue the study of human societies and cultures through a distinctly Christian lens, recognizing the need to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ at several levels of social interaction and respecting the image of God in people from diverse social and cultural environments.
