What is anthropology?

Anthropology is a broad field of study examining human social, cultural, and biological aspects across time. Anthropology is often divided into four distinct subareas:

  1. Sociocultural
  2. Biological-Physical
  3. Archaeology
  4. Linguistic

Need an appointment?

If you'd like to set up an appointment with me to talk about your assignments, send me an e-mail. Let me know what the assignment is about, what research you've done thus far, and any other related information.

I will be glad to help you with using the databases, looking for books, brainstorming ideas, citing sources, and related tasks. However, I can't help you write your paper, do your statistics, or complete any of your homework assignments.

For writing help, you can contact the Writing Center. For statistics tutoring, you can contact the Department of Mathematics

Remember, any of the Reference staff at our library can assist you with the basics of research help, but if you need assistance with anthropology specifically, please feel free to let me know!
