Ask critical questions about contemporary, past and future social life. You will develop analytical skills required to understand the four major themes of the program including gender, health and the body; nature, science and religion; culture and performance; and power, politics, and development.
This program focuses on a comparative study of the world’s societies. You will learn anthropological perspectives on the differences and the similarities among and between these living societies and cultures. Our world is constantly changing and its peoples are interconnected by new and powerful economic, cultural and technological forces. Develop the knowledge and skills to think critically and productively about how class, race, gender and ethnic identities are produced and expressed in shifting local and global contexts of power. Our overall goal is to help you become an informed global citizen.
These themes are explored in a wide variety of courses that engage such topics as: development and the environment; media and popular culture; health, illness and disability; gender and sexualities; tourism, religion and science; diasporic communities and displaced peoples; violence and conflict; and the colonial process. Other courses focus on processes of change in the prehistoric and historic past.
