Department of History, Anthropology, and Political Science

Anthropology is the study of humanity. Anthropology is distinguished from other disciplines by its emphasis on a holistic approach to the study of human behavior. Anthropologists consider culture, history, language, and biology essential for a complete understanding of humankind. The History and Anthropology Department provides a wide variety of courses that range from general surveys to specialized topics. The program goes far beyond an emphasis on coverage and content; it is designed to teach students to think critically, and communicate effectively. Additionally, most core course requirements carry the General Education designation. This means that this program is also a vehicle for students to broaden their perspectives and deepen their understandings of the world around them.
