Undergraduate Programs

Our undergraduate programs give students powerful tools for making sense of society and culture, and an appreciation of both different cultures and hierarchies and inequality in the 21st century. This broad training in understanding culture and society is a perfect foundation for a wide array of careers, from medicine and law to art and politics. As a discipline, anthropology combines the rigor of science with the creativity and improvisation of art; it endeavors to evoke the real spirit, the true picture of human life in all its complexity, context, and contradiction.

Our courses offer students critical understanding of key questions of war, poverty, resilience, and creativity; many also focus on particular regions of the world (for example, China, Latin America, Africa, and Europe), taught by faculty members who are leading world experts in these areas.
