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