The Anthropology Major

Assistant Professor: Matthew Lebrato

Anthropology examines the full scope of human diversity from the remote past to contemporary times. Drawing on humanistic and scientific knowledge, anthropologists explore humans as biological and cultural beings. At Lyon College, students gain a holistic understanding of humans as a biocultural species and immerse themselves in the critical themes, theories, concepts, and methods of contemporary anthropology. Through personalized attention and academic rigor, the Anthropology Program strives to produce students who are informed and engaged global citizens.
