  • Welcome to Anthropology

    Anthropology brings a global perspective to the study of human diversity by means of in-depth research at the local level and comparative studies that explore human experience through time and across space.

    At Syracuse University our program is organized around Archaeology and Cultural Anthropology; however, we embrace a holistic approach to anthropology through teaching in research in archaeological, biological, cultural, and linguistic.
