Anthropology

What is Anthropology?


According to the American Anthropological Association, anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences. A central concern of anthropologists is the application of knowledge to the solution of human problems. 
 
The University of Findlay does not offer an anthropology major or minor.  However, our Cultural Anthropology course is offered for general college credit and plays an important role in the education major and affiliated curricula.
