The undergraduate program at the University emphasizes a variety of subspecialties in social and cultural anthropology, but provides, nevertheless, a broad perspective on the fields of archaeology and physical anthropology. Because the department is devoted primarily to undergraduate instruction, students can take advantage of many opportunities to work closely with the faculty and to participate in small seminar classes. Courses are enriched by visits to museums and special exhibits in neighboring cultural centers, by films, and by local field inquiry.
