About Anthropology at GW

Anthropology is an intellectually exciting discipline.  Students deal with all aspects of human behavior – social and biological, past and present – a broad focus well suited to today’s globally integrated world. They also acquire a range of skills with broad applicability throughout life. These include formulating and testing hypotheses, gathering extensive bodies of data, and analyzing these data in the light of theoretical models.

We have major programs in: Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, and Archaeology as well as several minor programs.

The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences.
