Anthropology is the study of the human condition and experience over both time and space. It sets itself apart from other social sciences in its holistic aspiration to understand all aspects of humankind: past, present and future; cultural and biological. This holistic approach is reflected in the primary subdisciplines of study including archaeology, cultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, physical anthropology, and applied anthropology. Anthropology is both the study and celebration of the diversity of human lifeways, reminding us that despite our different cultures, we are all members of the human family and share a common nature and a common destiny.
Across subdisciplines and geographical areas at NDSU we take a critical approach to understanding human variation, past, present, and future. Our focal geographical areas include North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, and South Asia with other areas of the world represented throughout the curriculum.
