The Anthropology Department offers a rigorous and comprehensive program for graduate students, who examine and experience anthropology through fieldwork, laboratory work, and close study. Our faculty members maintain rigorous field research programs in areas as diverse as Afghanistan, Indonesia, China, South Africa, Mexico, Alaska, and Boston. Other areas of faculty expertise—the role of religion in politics and society, pluralism in society, urbanism, human/environment interactions, diet and foodways, and human evolutionary biology, among others—are at the forefront of current trends in anthropology.
