Biological Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology supports a broad-based program in Biological Anthropology which provides students with the background to study life history, reproductive ecology, social and health disparities, bioarchaeology, paleopathology and evolution. Extensive collections of casts of fossil primates and skeletal material are located within the department. Students are also encouraged to use the resources and courses available in the School of Medicine, the School of Dental Medicine, the Graduate School of Public Health, and other health and biology-related schools and departments within the University.
