Welcome to the anthropology department
Anthropology, is the holistic, historical, and globally comparative study of humankind. It seeks to produce useful generalizations about people and their behavior and to arrive at the fullest possible understanding of human diversity.
Anthropologists test hypotheses largely through fieldwork. The program at City College is designed to offer students a background in the four fields of the discipline:
- Sociocultural Anthropology
- Anthropological Linguistics
- Physical Anthropology
