Who were the Maya? What does chimpanzee life tell us about ourselves? How do women in Botswana feel about aging? Students with wide-ranging interests and curiosities are drawn to anthropology at Kenyon for a chance to explore the diversity of the human world.
Often referred to as the science of humanity, anthropology embraces biological, historical, and cultural studies as distinct but interrelated pursuits. Unusual among undergraduate institutions, Kenyon’s Department of Anthropology gives students a balanced exposure to the discipline’s four subfields of anthropology, archaeology, physical anthropology, and linguistic anthropology.
