Frazier Hall, University of Kansas main campus. Home of the  Department of Anthropology.

Anthropology is the study of past and present human societies.

Anthropologists are concerned with the origin, history, and future of our own species, so the field is as diverse as people are. It is one of the most wide-ranging of the academic disciplines.

If you have questions about any of our Anthropology courses (enrollment, waitlist, instructor, course syllabus from courses you've taken or other questions), please contact Mrs. Le-Thu Erazmus Campbell, ANTH Office Manager | Scheduling & Undergraduate Officer.

If you have questions about deadlines or application materials for our graduate program, please contact Corinne Butler (CLAS Graduate Program Coordinator) or call 785-864-9419.
