Broadest in scope of the social sciences, anthropology contributes to an understanding of the human condition through interpretations of human biological and cultural variation and diversity. Anthropologists shed light on human origins and on our relationships with one another and with our surroundings, environments, and other species. They look at social life and everyday activities, but they also address issues of pressing contemporary concern in the world today. Anthropology provides perspectives on our origins, the immediacy of our lived experiences, on global challenges, and what kind of futures we face.
To study Master of Arts in Anthropology at the University of Alberta is to embark on an exploration of human life and the human condition at all times and in all places, from understanding ancient migrations and past societies, to the human transformation of local, regional and global environments, and to our places, situations and responsibilities in the globalized modern world.
