Anthropology Program

Anthropology is the scientific and humanistic study of human culture and biology in the past and present and anywhere in the world. WKU's Anthropology Program offers students a cohesive program of study to enrich their understanding of interactions between human culture and biology in contemporary societies and in the archaeological and evolutionary past, to develop their cross-cultural perspectives, and to prepare them for a variety of careers. Delivered by four full-time faculty members, the anthropology curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning in the classroom, in the laboratory, and in the field; extracurricular opportunities and events; and a broad, four-field approach including cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and archaeology. Through major and minor programs and courses designed for students of all disciplines, we encourage students to step outside their biocultural bubbles to explore the rich diversity of human experiences in their own communities and around the globe.

We invite prospective students, current students, and alumni to learn more about what's new in the Anthropology Program.
