Department of Anthropology

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 critical analysis skills necessary for many careers as well as training for further graduate education.

Our programs and faculty research areas focus on sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, and museum studies. Department faculty provide a variety of opportunities for students to participate in mentored research in subjects of their interest.
