Anthropology at the University of Tennessee

Anthropology (literally the study of humans) is an extremely broad and diverse field concerned with every aspect of the human condition: past, present and future. Students studying Anthropology at the University of Tennessee learn of this breadth and diversity by taking courses in Cultural, Biological and Archaeological Anthropology. Research conducted by the faculty and graduate students of the Department is as wide-ranging (both topically and geographically) as the field itself.

Our research, supported by major funding agencies, is presented at scholarly conferences and published in highly-respected journals and academic presses. We share our knowledge with the public through a range of academic outreach efforts. Our faculty maintain on-going collaborations with a range of organizations spanning public and private sectors, international agencies, non-governmental and community organizations.
