Academic Departments and Programs
Anthropology is the study of how humans have developed and adapted, both culturally and physically, in both the present and past. Anthropologists examine the origins of the human species, physical and cultural remains from archaeological sites, the development of value systems, social relationships, and symbolic communication.
Well-known anthropologists include Margaret Mead; famous for her work in the Samoan and New Guinea cultures, and Jane Goodall who has made significant discoveries about primate societies. If you are interested in the biological evolution of humans, how people live in various cultural settings (in both the past and present), how societies are adapted to their environments, and the structure of language, then Anthropology would be a good choice of study.
At The University of Winnipeg, you can specialize in Cultural Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, Archaeology or Biological Anthropology, or you may choose an integrated program that includes all four areas.
