Students participating in Archeology Field School Students participating in Archeology Field School

Anthropology is the study of humankind...

of ancient and modern people and their ways of living. It seeks to understand the whole panorama--in geographic space and evolutionary time--of human existence.


Anthropology students will have the opportunity to study past and present cultures in areas including Mesoamerica and North America through research programs with anthropology faculty and student fieldwork in summer archaeological field schools in the Northeast. You can also study the interactions between local societies and the global economy, the evolution of past societies, and the relationship of human health to the environment.
