Courses

The Department of Anthropology offers courses broadly categorized as Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and Cultural Anthropology. Until June 2016, Cultural Anthropology courses will be divided into (TOPIC) and (AREA). Thereafter, this distinction will be eliminated and Cultural Anthropology courses will be listed as (CULT).

Please consult the teaching schedule below for the most current listing of Anthropology courses by term. This list is subject to change and supercedes any other published listing.
