Anthropology is offered as a minor or as a concentration in the Liberal Studies major. Anthropology is most simply defined as the study of humans, in all of our wondrous similarities and differences. It is a field that explores the important question of what makes us human by studying our unique biology and our diverse societies and cultures.

Anthropology helps students to understand and value human diversity, to develop an appreciation for their local context, as well as a global awareness, and to embrace an interdisciplinary perspective by drawing on both the natural and social sciences and the humanities.
