Anthropology is the study of humans and our biological relatives across time and space. It is the only field to address the diversity of the human experience in its biological, cultural, and historical contexts. We see our long-term vision as a department that addresses and analyzes social, biological, and environmental problems. We have identified four broad themes that address these problems and potential solutions in ways that cut across the subdisciplines: ecology and evolution; human responses to local and global crises; cultural, ethical, and political practices of worldmaking; and collaborative and public anthropology. In 2019, our department was ranked 3rd (tied) in the country for AAU public universities by Academic Analytics based on our scholarly output.
