Overview

After gaining foundational theoretical and topical knowledge relating to the field of anthropology in general and to their specific research foci in particular, students work intensively with faculty members to design and implement an advanced research project.
  • Our Anthropology program from University of Nevada, Las Vegas is explicitly cross-disciplinary, and students are encouraged to work with a variety of faculty members and to approach anthropology through a broad lens. Our program focuses on four broad areas: childhood and parenting; food, subsistence, and nutrition; human adaptive strategies; and sexuality, gender and identity.
