Anthropology is the holistic study of humanity – our cultures, biologies, and environments in both past and contemporary contexts. Our discipline can be practiced anywhere people are present, from urban centers to the most remote places on Earth. Professional anthropologists work at universities, crime labs, archaeological field sites, corporate offices, healthcare centers, and more. The Anthropology program at Southeast is founded on a four-field approach that incorporates sociocultural, archaeological, linguistic, and biological perspectives. If you are fascinated by diversity in human life ways, we invite you to explore the learning and career options available to anthropology students.
