Study what it means to be human amongst contemporary challenges.
In the Anthropology program, you will experience intricate and stimulating fieldwork, where one observes and participates in people’s lives. You will also experience the depth and rigour of academic research that explores the ways in which we have lived in the world, through time and in different places. You will gain a better understanding of the vast array of human practices and constitutive relations with non-humans, which are fundamental to identifying and understanding the critical social, cultural, political, economic, and environmental challenges of today.
