About

If you are interested in how people live in our world in many different ways, both in thought and lifestyle, then you can become an anthropologist. Find out how communities and cultures come to be and how they change over time, through conflict and co-operation. The Anthropology program is offered by Simon Fraser University.

Overview

When you study Anthropology, you develop a flexibility of mind that allows you to think about people’s interactions in new ways and imagine alternate social possibilities.

The Anthropology program offered by Simon Fraser University in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers courses that investigate such human issues as global development, the arts, health and medicine, politics, sport, and language.

Anthropology is also available as a minor. You can start this program at the Surrey campus. 

Career

The world is changing rapidly and you have no way of knowing the full range of career opportunities available to you in the future. These occupations are traditionally associated with this program. Just don't be surprised if they look a little different by the time you graduate!
