The department is committed to comparative research that seeks theories that allow for the enormous diversity in human life. Our program of study includes a holistic approach to the study of humans and seeks to expose students to all four of the traditional subdisciplines of anthropology—-archaeological anthropology, sociocultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and physical anthropology. The emphasis, however, is on intensive training in one subfield. Our faculty encourages study outside anthropology, where the related fields of biological sciences, statistics, languages, media, history, and the humanities enrich the understanding of particular problems.
