Cultural Anthropology Concentration

This concentration explores pressing global issues through the lens of culture, while introducing students to the core concepts, themes, methods, and ethical concerns that guide cultural anthropological research, analysis, and sensibilities.

Through this concentration students will learn how to identify and interpret the complexities of human culture-what makes cultures different? In what ways are cultures more alike than we might assume? Students examine and learn about variety of topics, including but not limited to: race and racism; ethnicity and nationalism; gender; sexuality; foodways; rights; kinship, family, and marriage; class and inequality; global economy; politics and power; arts and performance; digital worlds; religion, health and illness.
