The Complete Human Experience

Approaching human behavior in cross-cultural, collaborative, and innovative ways.

Las Vegas is one of the most exciting cities in the world, and we are part of the excitement! Our departmental faculty conduct interesting and exciting research in anthropology locally, nationally, and internationally. Much of our research is interdisciplinary, so if you attend UNLV, you will have an opportunity to gain experience in many different aspects of anthropology and will be trained to approach human behavior in cross-cultural, collaborative, and innovative ways.
