Why Anthropology at UF?

Anthropology is, at its core, an attempt to explain why humans do the things they do. The academic pursuit of such knowledge dovetails with a wide range of disciplines and professions that deal with the human experience. In a globalized and media-saturated world, anthropology has become much more than the armchair study of foreign lands and ancient peoples. It is now a grounded, multifaceted pursuit, with opportunities for its students to cut across cultural, geographic, and linguistic lines to contribute to a broader understanding of human behavior in a rapidly changing world.

The University of Florida Department of Anthropology’s quality of research is highly ranked on a national level. We value the application of anthropology to pressing sociopolitical concerns and health issues. We are committed to international and intercultural research and education.

The Department of Anthropology takes pride in maintaining a holistic perspective, bridging the four traditional fields that comprise the discipline: sociocultural, archaeological, biological, and linguistic anthropology. Both graduate students and faculty conduct research that cut across the four fields, and extend anthropological investigations into other disciplines.

A wealth of resources and specialties are available to both undergraduate and graduate students.

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
