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. Whittier offers two alternatives for a major in anthropology - an intra-departmental anthropology-sociology major and an interdisciplinary major in cross-cultural studies. A minor in anthropology is also available. 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.
