The Department of Anthropology and Classical StudiesAbout Us Zippy Picture

...offers students the opportunity to explore the full scope of human adaptations; from our earliest hominid ancestors, to the urban societies of the modern world. 

Anthropology includes both a cultural and a physical component. Cultural anthropology examines the role of culture in shaping the lives of people from every corner of the world, and in every walk of life. Physical anthropology focuses on early human evolution and the adaptations leading to anatomically modern people.

Classical Studies draws from a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary perspectives to explore the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, and their relationship to our own.

Archaeology studies past cultures and how ancient peoples used material culture to adapt to their natural and social environments. Together, these fields provide the student with a broad and compelling perspective on who we are, and how we shaped our contemporary world.
