About Us - NCSU Anthropology Program
Dr. Ann Ross (right), associate professor of anthropology at NC State, teaches students how to measure a skull.
Anthropologists explore the diversity of human culture in the past and present. Our interest in this diversity leads to the study of a number of different phenomena, for example: globalization, evolution, ethnicity, human development, ecology, tourism, monetization, religion, and environmental change. Faculty in this department currently study these and other topics, including applied anthropology and bioarchaeology -- not only locally -- but also in many parts of the world: Latin America, Africa, the Pacific, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia.
The anthropology program at North Carolina State University encourages an international perspective to the examination of such key issues with course offerings on diverse areas of the world. Through the study of anthropology, students gain valuable tools to analyze and solve problems in an increasingly global society. The faculty is committed to a holistic approach to anthropology in which the study of past human lifeways, biology, and culture intersect to provide a better understanding of the complexity of the human experience.
