Department of Anthropology

Anthropology provides a broad base of information about human culture and what makes humans unique. Culture is the totality of what humans learn and the basis for how humans define the world. Anthropologists study all kinds of individual cultures, both living and dead and simple and complex, in order to gain an understanding of culture as a human phenomenon. The very nature of anthropology is multicultural and historical. This program is hands-on, and students regularly participate in faculty-directed research projects in the Pensacola area. The Department of Anthropology offers specializations in Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, and General Anthropology.
