Our distinguished and award-winning faculty have diverse research and teaching interests - from investigating our earliest human ancestors to studying contemporary societal issues. We aim to educate socially conscious citizens who value diversity, inclusion, and significant research. We offer two B.A.s, a B.S, an M.A., and three minors. Our students benefit from close faculty-student mentorship, meaningful and engaging courses, and opportunities for laboratory-based and experiential learning, research, and internships. Our students have found success in careers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.
