Department Chair: Peter E. Siegel, PhD

All peoples and all aspects of human life are the subject of anthropology. The discipline stresses the study of non-western cultures, provides insights from these studies toward understanding the world we live in, and encourages responsibility by applying the results to problems in our rapidly changing world. The five basic fields of anthropology are represented in the department: cultural anthropology, archaeology, physical anthropology, anthropological linguistics and applied anthropology.
