What do Anthropologists study

Image Picker for Section 0
Learn how and why people and their cultures are both similar and different over time and around the world.


Study people and primates face-to-face, and past peoples by exploring fossils and digging archaeological sites.

Examine the origins of humans as cultural beings, the processes that create particular cultures, and how cultures change as people, things, and ideas move and encounter others.


Every career today requires understanding of other cultures and how they influence our complicated, rapidly changing, interconnected human experience.
