Anthropology focuses on human biological and cultural variation in time and space, with four traditionally recognized sub-fields:
- Anthropological archaeology
- Biological anthropology
- Sociocultural anthropology
- Linguistic anthropology
The Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan has been and remains a four-field department. We teach, train students, and do research across the four sub-fields and have faculty in each. Our undergraduates and graduate students learn, at the appropriate level, the fundamentals of the four sub-fields, their interactions and links with one another, and their relation to other academic fields.
