Undergraduate Program

Our Program Goals

  • We aim to empower students with knowledge of our species’ place in nature, including a solid understanding of evolutionary processes and how they have shaped the history of the human lineage.
  • We seek to train students to be critical thinkers (an important skill in a discipline where the base knowledge changes with every new fossil discovery), independent learners and collaborative problem solvers. 
  • We seek to develop life-long learners who can apply the techniques and knowledge of evolutionary anthropology to the ever-changing landscape of evolutionary theory, human evolution and the broader scope of the natural sciences.
