Anthropology

Anthropology studies human diversity and complexity. It has four main branches:

  1. social cultural
  2. biological
  3. archeology
  4. linguistics

Anthropologists increasingly focus on practical concerns.

Faculty expertise focuses on the peoples and cultures of the Andes and western Amazon, Mexico, Latter-day Saints, Popular Catholicism, shamanism, religion health, digital anthropology, food, peoples of the Great Basin, Freemont, indigenous Southwest and public archeology.  

Training at UVU is interdisciplinary and provides a strong grounding in anthropological history and social theory, as well as in methods. We emphasize the classic four fields and encourage students to develop and carry out their own research projects as part of becoming anthropologists.
