Would you like to discover how people live and think by digging deeper into world cultures, languages, and artifacts that we produce together as human beings? If you answered “yes,” then you may be especially well-suited to a major or minor in anthropology.

  • analyze everyday challenges with the key advantage of the cumulative perspectives of hundreds of societies; and 
  • identify those otherwise invisible cultural assumptions that everyone makes based on their unique origins and upbringings.
