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. Students interested in applying for graduate study are strongly encouraged to contact the anthropologist(s) they would like to work with.
