Anthropology is engagement with human differences from the perspective of lived experience, past, present and future. The unique skills and perspectives that a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology provides include an understanding of how we are all shaped by the cultural, social, political and historical contexts in which we live.
As an undergraduate in the Anthropology program, there are many opportunities available to students, both on and off campus, that are designed to provide hands-on learning opportunities and valuable experience for jobs after university and preparation for graduate studies.
