The Anthropology and Earth Science Department provides a broad-based curriculum that blends the study of people and the Earth to help students understand the influences that have shaped both land and culture. Courses are taught by distinguished faculty who are highly active in conducting research and are frequently published in scholarly journals.
The diverse curriculum is enhanced by hands-on, immersive learning experiences, including a variety of advanced research labs for studying topics such as archaeology, environmental magnetism and geophysics, electron microprobe and ceramics, and a number of field courses offered at different locations in the U.S. and overseas. Field experience is a critical component of the program and is designed to provide students with a deeper exposure and understanding of their chosen discipline through practical, real-life training and education alongside their peers and professors. Students graduate from the program with a rich understanding of land and culture, and hands-on research and practical skills to excel in graduate school or their chosen career field.
