The anthropology department emphasizes the holistic study of the human condition.
Our students’ interests range from world cultures and global challenges, to human rights and human origins. Students in Macalester’s Anthropology Department travel the world studying cultures, globalization, environmental issues, public health issues, identity, ethnography, and the practice of anthropology. Students may major or minor in anthropology.
A copy is also available on the department bulletin board, outside of Carnegie 04.
