Studying Anthropology in Canada

Students studying anthropology learn to have a broad understanding of the past and present social, linguistic, and cultural diversity of people and their biological diversity and evolution. Students study the four main fields within anthropology and their interrelationships, and may choose to specialize in one (or several) areas.

Students begin by learning about physical anthropology, a history of the development of evolutionary theory, and learn about the biological basis for human evolution and adaptation. Students also study topics in archaeology such as the methods and material remains used to reconstruct the past, the economic, social, political, and ideological systems of human experience, the biology of people of the past, and the causes of culture change. Sociocultural anthropology topics include gender, language and culture, urban anthropology, and the comparative study of various cultures of the world (eg. aboriginals in Canada, Africa, South Asia, China, Latin America, Mediterranean cultures, etc). Students also learn about languages and how they have evolved over human time, ethnography, and how language influences culture.

Students may participate in field trips to venues such as archaeological digs, historical sites, or may travel to other countries to study foreign cultures. They learn about the various field techniques used to gather anthropological information and learn to collaborate with those in psychology, medicine, social work, and community services.
