Understanding the Panorama of Human Existence: Welcome to Anthropology at UTM

Anthropology is the study of humankind from its beginnings to the present day. Many disciplines concern themselves with the human, but only anthropology seeks to interpret the whole panorama of human existence — in geographic space and evolutionary time — through comparative and holistic study.

UTM offers courses in all four traditional subfields of Anthropology: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Sociocultural Anthropology. We also have strengths in the Anthropology of Health and Forensic Anthropology. Students can combine courses in many ways to earn an Honours Bachelor of Arts (HBA) or Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc) degree.
