Anthropology is the study of human diversity past and present. Anthropology is concerned with both culture and biology and with linking the academic study of diversity and society to real-world applications. The Department of Anthropology at the University of Delaware is one of the world's largest and most holistic undergraduate-focused anthropology departments. Anthropology majors and minors at the University of Delaware take classes that prepare them for a wide range of employment opportunities, including medicine, business, law and education. Our program also prepares students for advanced graduate study in the humanities and sciences. We have an established track record and outstanding reputation for training students to understand the complexities of social life in the global world.
The Department of Anthropology is known for providing its undergraduates with a true learning community, where excellent facilities are combined with close personal contact between students and faculty that creates a true learning community for students. They participate in research alongside faculty, and this allows them to advance individual interests that pertain to their career goals and carry them beyond college. Our students have accompanied professors to research sites in Latin America, Southeast Asia among many other locations. Travel funds are awarded to support student research, and some students serve as undergraduate teaching assistants to faculty.
Anthropology students take courses in each of the main subfields of anthropology. They can focus on particular world areas or themes, such as biological, medical, and public health issues, disasters and humanitarianism, the impacts of globalization, art and material culture, and archeology. Our courses are united by a shared concern with human diversity and applying critical knowledge to understand the problems of a complex world.
Our active Anthropology Club allows students to deepen their engagement with peers and faculty who share common interests. The club sponsors activities and talks and allows students to travel with fellow anthropologists to conferences and research sites.
