• 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, we embrace a holistic approach to anthropology through teaching and research in archaeological, biological, cultural, and linguistic anthropology.

    The Anthropology Department is within the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. The college encourages faculty and students to become engaged in scholarship for the public good and to seek out and address solutions to past, present and future human problems locally and globally. This objective is consistent to the central concerns of all of the subfields of anthropology.
