Anthropology is a holistic and broad approach to the study of humankind. It deals with our origins, biological characteristics, languages, ancient past, and the beliefs and customs of contemporary cultures. Today, anthropologists work in research centers, hospitals, corporations, government offices, community organizations as well as academic settings.
Montclair State’s anthropology program prepares students for careers in research and in teaching. At both the undergraduate and graduate level, we provide students with skills to meet the challenges of an increasingly globalized, multicultural world.
