Cultural Anthropology Concentration


Cultural Anthropology is the study of human culture. It involves such topics as traditional societies, gender roles, indigenous rights, human rights, public health, refugees, museum studies, and shamanism.

We have two Cultural Anthropology faculty members: Dr. Patricia Lerch and Dr. Bill Alexander. In addition, Dr. Carolyn Jost Robinson concentrates in Biocultural Anthropology. Please visit their individual websites for information on their specific interests. Both conduct ongoing fieldwork research. We offer several internships and individual research project supervision in the field of Cultural Anthropology.
