Graduate School Application Workshop for Underrepresented Scholars

Are you trying to decide if graduate school in the field of Anthropology is right for you? Join us for a virtual workshop on how to apply to graduate programs in Anthropology!

The Anthropology Department is made up of Four Subfields:   

What does it mean to be human?  Where have we come from?  How do we live and communicate?

What forces have shaped human physiology and social life?  

ANTHROPOLOGY IS ABOUT:

  • Understanding how we produce goods and power, make kinship and gender, decide what is right and wrong, build and destroy environments -- all in such a variety of ways;

  • Studying language and other forms of communication, such as new media, technology, and the arts;

  • Through archaeological excavations, examining big picture changes in society, culture, and biology over time -- from the deep human past to the fraught realities of lives unfolding today;

  • Investigating the evolution of human and non-human primates through study of adaptation, genetics, behavior, and ecology -- confronting the contours and limits of human uniqueness.

 

All faculty, staff, and students are expected to complete this daily online health screening before entering the building:
