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.

What Will I Learn?

Students in the Anthropology program at the University of Southern Mississippi will gain a range of skill sets that can be applied in many settings. Cultural anthropologists will be introduced to ethnographic methods, including surveys and participant observation, as they immerse themselves in the community under study. 

Those specializing in archaeology and bioarchaeology will learn excavation methods as well as laboratory analysis of artifacts and human remains to reconstruct past lifeways, particularly in the Southeast and Mesoamerica.
