Anthropology is the study of humankind over the entire world and throughout time. Anthropologists study existing cultures and human behavior (cultural anthropology), traditions (folklore), prehistoric cultures and lifeways (archaeology), the biological makeup and evolution of humans (physical anthropology), and the origin and nature of language (linguistics).

Anthropology majors are introduced to all areas of anthropological study. In addition they may emphasize one or more subfield within anthropology.

  Cultural:
Description and comparison of living cultures.
  Physical: Examination of humans from a biological perspective
  Archaeology: Collecting and analyzing the remains of past cultures.
  Linguistics: Analyzing languages and the connections between language and culture
In addition to covering these traditional areas of anthropology, the department provides special expertise in the following areas: forensic anthropology, Mesoamerican and Maya Cave archaeology, California archaeology, medical anthropology, and visual anthropology.

The department offers the B.A. and M.A. degree as well as a B.A. honors program and minor in anthropology.
