We synthesize the knowledge and approaches from the social sciences, natural sciences and the humanities to study humankind — from its earliest evolutionary ancestors to its contemporary challenges and successes.
We strengthen our approach by combining traditional anthropological subdisciplines of archaeology, biological and cultural anthropology.
Through coursework, laboratory and fieldwork, we train students to identify, understand and address a wide range of problems, with intermeshed social, biological, material, and environmental dimensions.
Our versatile graduates go on to a wide range of careers— in medicine, law, preservation, NGOs, and business— all of which provide opportunities to pursue the kind of determined, human-centered, inquisition and research that thrills them most.
These opportunities start by asking “what if?” — which brings our students here.
