Explore what it means to be human

Get ready to look at the world through new eyes.

As an anthropology major, you’ll learn to understand the remarkably different ways we express our humanity.

You’ll examine how culture affects the way we experience the world — how we make choices, how we’re alike and different, and why we act and interact the way we do.

In an increasingly interconnected world, being able to examine, analyze and think critically about culture is highly valued by employers in the business sector, education and beyond.

Outside the classroom

You won’t just learn about culture in a classroom though. We take you there.

Study in a new culture for a few weeks or months — including popular programs to Iceland and Morocco — through our award-winning Global Opportunities program, where you’ll be able to collect data and write your own ethnographic text.

Secure an internship in a museum, on an archaeological dig, or in a medical field school. Join us on a department field trip to D.C. or to interact with one of our many expert speakers.
