Offered by the geography and anthropology department, the anthropology certificate serves to enrich and deepen student learning in other disciplines and fields of study, especially those related to history, culture, social processes, geography, language, biology and human evolution. Courses explore a variety of topics, including human behavior, environmental adaptation, biocultural evolution, religious expression, rules and patterns for speech behavior, and cultural shifts.
