Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology!
Our department was created in July 2004, when we left our former departmental 'home' of Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies. The department offers an undergraduate major in Anthropology, minors in Folklore and Anthropology, and a M.A. in Folk Studies, plus a number of general education courses.
As of July 1, 2012, the Kentucky Folklife Program, formerly an interagency program of the Kentucky Historical Society and the Kentucky Arts Council, has moved to our department. We welcome Brent Bjorkman as the new director.
Please come visit us in our departmental offices in Room 237 of the Ivan Wilson Fine Arts Center.
