A description of the Anthropology Program at Western State Colorado University.
REAL FIELDWORK... REAL RESEARCH... REAL OPPORTUNITY...
Anthropology is the scientific study of humans that is holistic and cross-cultural. Through anthropology a student achieves a broad geographical and temporal perspective of human biological and cultural adaptations. This perspective includes an understanding of cultural diversity in our own society, in our world at large, and in the past.
