Anthropology is the study of humans and their cultures. The discipline includes both the comparative study of worldwide variations in beliefs and behaviors and the evolution of humankind from prehistoric to contemporary times. Anthropology at the University of Delaware encompasses three fields of study: social and cultural anthropology, biological or physical anthropology, and archaeology. Research in each subfield typically involves fieldwork: living with people in a community; exploring fossil remains or primate behavior; investigating archaeological sites. Anthropology program emphasizes a variety of subspecialties in social and cultural anthropology, and provides broad perspectives on archaeology and biological anthropology. Social and cultural anthropologists undertake holistic and comparative research on communities throughout the world, investigating economics and political institutions, social organizations, religions, and art forms. Biological anthropology addresses the emergence of hominid populations, primate behavior, and processes of adaptation in modern populations. Archaeologists recover the physical remains of past communities and reconstruct their associated cultures. Career paths The intensely interdisciplinary and active nature of anthropological research makes a degree in the discipline ideal preparation for nearly any career involving close study and interpretation of people’s actions and goals. In addition, the complex intermingling of different ethnic groups and cultures in today’s world calls for the sophisticated understanding of cultural differences that is central to the work of 21st century anthropologists.
