The Department of Anthropology is one of the few in the country that focuses exclusively on socio-cultural anthropology, one of the four traditional subfields of the discipline. The department has helped to lead debates on many of the issues that have shaped the field over the last thirty years. Our faculty has field research experience in the Americas, South Asia, the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa. We work on themes such as the everyday, the state, religion, media, and health, building on interdisciplinary dialogues across the humanities, social sciences, and health sciences. The Department offers a PhD program, a BA program for undergraduate majors, and courses for students coming from other majors such as public health and international studies.
