Anthropology, Department of


Anthropology focuses on human biological and cultural variation in time and space, with four traditionally recognized subfields: anthropological archaeology, biological (or physical) anthropology, ethnology (cultural or sociocultural anthropology), and linguistic anthropology. The Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan has been and remains a four-field department. We teach, train students, and do research across the four subfields and have faculty in each. Our undergraduates and graduate students learn, at the appropriate level, the fundamentals of the four subfields, their interactions and links with one another, and their relation to other academic fields.
