Field of Study: Anthropology
Description: Anthropology examines human biological, social, and cultural development. There are three areas of research: archaeology, evolutionary anthropology, and social and cultural anthropology. Archaeology studies surviving evidence of people’s activities in the past. Evolutionary anthropology is the study of the biological diversity of humans, the history of this diversity, and the biological relationships between humans and non-human primates. Social and cultural anthropology examines the question of how we humans organize our lives together, and why we do so in such vastly different ways.

The B.Sc. program focuses on evolutionary anthropology.
