About 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 understand the whole panorama of human existence - in geographic space and evolutionary time - through comparative and holistic study.

At the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM) Department of Anthropology we cover the traditional four subfields of anthropology: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and sociocultural anthropology; this includes strengths in forensic anthropology and the anthropology of health.
