Anthropology Department - University of New Mexico


The misson of Anthropology at UNM is the study of human cultural and biological diversity in past and present environments. We present our discipline’s contributions through teaching, research, and service. Our studies transcend time and place, linking the variety of forms, behaviors, and the meanings that underlie human experiences over the millennia of our existence. The three subfields, archaeology, ethnology, and evolutionary anthropology, apply a variety of perspectives and methods to this task.
