Anthropology

Our faculty and students engage with and contribute to current anthropological scholarship. We explore topics such as historical anthropology and archaeology, colonialism, space and landscape, race, nature culture, and materiality. Collaboration with local and descendant communities is also a crucial part of our work ethics and practice.

Students can pursue bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in Anthropology. Our graduate program offers terminal M.A.'s and M.A./Ph.D.'s with specializations in Historical Anthropology and Archaeology. Undergraduates can major and minor in Anthropology or minor in Native Studies. Students at all levels have multiple research opportunities in and around Williamsburg.
