Anthropology and Archaeology
Uncover the keys to civilization and — and to your success.
If nothing gets your mind racing or heart pumping like uncovering the remains of an ancient civilization in a South American rainforest or observing the eating habits of immigrants in Brooklyn, your quirky interests have a home in the Department of Anthropology and Archaeology. Using a four-field approach — cultural anthropology, archaeology, physical anthropology and linguistics — the department combines the sciences with the humanities to understand the physical, social and cultural factors contributing to the commonalities and differences of historical and contemporary human behavior.
