Approaching human behavior in cross-cultural, collaborative, and innovative ways.
Anthropology is the integrative study of human beings around the world, both present and past. Within this broad field of study, UNLV anthropology represents archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Departmental themes highlight adaptive strategies; food and nutrition; parenting, childhood, and development; and sexuality, romance, gender, and identity.
In the last two years, two UNLV faculty members and four students have visited various parts of the world to study, teach, and foster international goodwill as part of the prestigious Fulbright Program.
