Department of Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology brings students and scholars together to understand human experience in all of its fullness.

Students enhance this big-picture understanding through stimulating research, fieldwork, and courses that integrate anthropology's historical, cultural, and biological perspectives.

Students can major in Anthropology or enhance another major like Environmental Studies, Global and Cultural Studies, or the Whittier Scholars Program with Anthropology courses. 

Whatever they choose to pursue, anthropology students graduate from Whittier prepared for advanced study of the field and careers ranging from law to religion, business to education.
