Social and cultural anthropologists study different societies and cultures around the world. They examine such fundamental challenges as indigeneity, racism, migration, gender, development, globalization, nationalism, war, and terrorism.
Put your education to work
Social and Cultural Anthropology provides a wealth of opportunities. Graduates have worked as community development officers, cultural artifacts specialists, museum education directors, traditional knowledge facilitators, and government policy analysts, among other careers.
We offer field schools that promote research and experiences outside the classroom. Our method includes long-term field research to better understand our own culture and of cultures different than our own. Our professors study a wide range of topics, such as medical, economic, urban, business and political anthropology.
Fieldwork is an important part of the student experience. You’ll have opportunities to spend time in the field locally as well as internationally.
