Through courses in archaeology, ethnology and human origins, the anthropology curriculum is designed to provide you with a thorough overview of the human experience and to serve as a basis for an informed understanding of your own culture.
The anthropology department at Connecticut College is deeply committed to representing anthropological knowledge in the tradition of the liberal arts. That is, whereas the department represents the current discipline in its various forms and enterprises, we seek to present this knowledge in a holistic manner.
Geographic specializations in the department include Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, South America and North America.
Our goal is to lead you to become a sophisticated thinker about the methods, theories and ethnographic data that constitute the discipline. If you choose to pursue a career in the field, our goal is to prepare you to enter graduate school.
