About

At the Anthropology program at University of Calgary, we take a comparative, cross-cultural and cross-specific perspective to understand human beings. We consider how humans evolved, how they shape — and are shaped by — their culture, and we seek to understand the records they have left behind.

Overview

Our students are curious and driven to understand the world around them. And the research options are boundless for students accepted into the thesis-based Anthropology program at University of Calgary, boasting both a socio-cultural stream (anthropology and militarization, medical anthropology, sustainability, urban anthropology) and a biological anthropology stream (conservation, human osteology, population genetics, primatology, paleoanthropology).

  • Students choose a methods course: either Methods in Anthropological Research or Current Issues in Methodology in Primatology.
