Welcome to Anthropology!

2018 Anthropology Graduates


Anthropology is the most comprehensive social science discipline because anthropologists study every facet of human experience and behavior, both past and present.


Through a combination of classroom and field work, BYU’s Anthropology Program trains students in current methods and theory while teaching them critical analysis skills necessary for many careers, including further academic work in anthropology.


Departmental programs and faculty research areas focus on Sociocultrual Anthropology and Archaeology. Department faculty provide a variety of opportunities for students to participate in mentored research in subjects of their interest.
