The study of humanity

Asking questions…

Why did some societies shift to a grain based diet? What happens when a government prevents an endangered language from being spoken in public? How do long-term disasters affect human health? Beloit Anthropology trains students to embrace the connections between human history, culture, and biology.

And finding solutions.

Integrate perspectives from the social sciences, humanities, and natural sciences. Use that understanding to tackle social problems, empower communities, and confront challenges to our environment.
