Anthropology is a holistic science dedicated to the study of human cultural and biological diversity and evolution. Anthropology is unique in that it integrates fields of study that traditionally span multiple disciplines in the sciences, arts, and professional studies.

Studying anthropology is a great way to learn about the many intriguing facets of humanity across place and time. Anthropology majors also develop useful and marketable life skills that are broadly applicable to multiple career trajectories. Anthropology students strive to learn what people think is important in different circumstances, which is critical to learning how to communicate effectively in a wide variety of cultural situations and work environments.
