#1 in the U.S. for research expenditures in anthropology
– National Science Foundation Rankings, 2016
"We focus on breakthroughs that are concrete and beneficial for all, so that our efforts have influence — not just in the confines of labs and classrooms, but in hospital rooms and living rooms, in rural villages, bustling metropolises, and in the many critical personal and global-level decisions to be made by our species moving forward."
With the largest and most research-productive anthropology faculty in the nation, our school provides some of the best opportunities for graduates – and undergraduates – to get involved in research opportunities under the direction of leaders in the social sciences.
From unraveling the mysteries of ancient urban life at the Mesoamerican metropolis of Teotihuacan to understanding the complexities of today’s greatest global health challenges, our affiliated centers push beyond disciplinary boundaries to produce actionable research.
Our faculty and students regularly publish in several of the world’s premier scientific journals, like Nature, Science, American Anthropologist, PNAS, PLos One and Current Anthropology.
