Department of Anthropology faculty and students are actively engaged in a wide range of publicly and privately funded research projects. These projects not only fall within the traditional subdisciplines of Anthropology: Archaeology and Socio-cultural Anthropology, but are also relevant to our department's focus in the areas of Environment, Health, and Heritage.
