Anthropology takes humans and their cultures, throughout the world and through the entirety of human history, as its central object of study. This field gives students a framework for understanding their place in the natural world. It examines humanity's evolutionary background and development, the organization of social and cultural life, the nature of culture as a system of meaning to organize and interpret experience, the evolution of societies, and the interrelationships between culture and shared ways of thinking and feeling. Anthropology views the world of humanity's many cultures as a natural laboratory in which a multitude of varied historical adaptations have developed and are continuing to evolve, the study of which can help in the understanding of human behavior and the course of history. Providing an excellent foundation for a diverse, liberal education, the study of anthropology also contributes to the preparation of students for careers in education, medicine, business and industry, government service, and other walks of life in which a broad knowledge of cultural dynamics, ethnic diversity and human relations is important. The program is available under both Plan A (with thesis) and Plan B (without thesis). The student must complete a total of 30 credits.
