Anthropology is the holistic study of humankind using both scientific and humanistic approaches. In fact, every aspect of human beings, from their DNA to their beliefs about the supernatural, from their material remains to their language use, raises anthropological questions.

Incoming first-year students can take a variety of courses in anthropology this fall. None of the courses listed on this page have any prerequisites, and all are appropriate for first-year students, subject to the availability of seats. All satisfy the Social Science distribution requirement, and some satisfy the Diversity requirement.
