Anthropology is the comparative study of humanity that focuses on people in all places throughout history.  You will study beliefs, values and practices of various cultures and will compare similarities and differences among diverse groups.  By analyzing other cultures, you will learn more about your own.

Research plays an important role in the study of anthropology.  Along with research inside the classroom, you can participate in DePaul's summer archaeological field school that will give you hands-on experience.

Our faculty is made up of scholars who have research expertise in the geographic areas of Europe, the Middle East, Pacific Islands, Africa, the Caribbean and the U.S.  Because our university is positioned in Chicago, you will gain practical experience and research opportunities that will prepare you for a future in anthropology.

We also offer a combined bachelor's in Anthropology/master's in Secondary Education Social Science degree program, which allows you to complete a bachelor's degree and a graduate degree in five years.
