About

Anthropology at the University of Southern Mississippi is the study of the human condition, both biological and cultural, across space and time. 

Overview

All societies are confronted with the same issues, from how to adapt to their environment to deciding whom they may marry to understanding the afterlife, but there are myriad ways that these issues are solved. Anthropologists gain an understanding and appreciation of these approaches as they explore the alternative ways of being human.
