Description:Anthropology is an interdisciplinary field that enables students to learn about the cultural and biological diversity of humans. Focusing on medical, applied, visual and environmental anthropology, our Anthropology program is one of the only ones in Canada where the full-time professors are members of First Nations. The program includes courses on ethno-medicine and cross-cultural healing practices, public health and epidemiology, food choices and disease prevention, theories of material culture, visual ethnography, anthropology of the arts, Indigenous photography and decolonization. A field course is offered in Costa Rica every second year.

A minor in Archaeological and Cultural Landscapes is also available. A field course allows students to acquire hands-on experience and to familiarize themselves with the profession of archaeology. There are tens of thousands of recognized archaeological sites in Ontario.
