Studying Anthropology

In the Anthropology program of study you will learn about three major sub-disciplines of anthropology: archaeology, biological anthropology, and socio-cultural anthropology.

In addition to the traditional BA and HBA programs in anthropology, Lakehead University also offers a four year BA (Anthropology major)/BEd - primary/junior specialization. It is also one of the few departments in Canada to offer a BSc and HBSc. The Department of Anthropology also participates in several interdisciplinary undergraduate programs.

As a student of anthropology at Lakehead University, you will experience a blend of lectures, seminars, labs and field work. You will have the opportunity of gaining insight into a wide range of topics, including human biocultural evolution and adaptation, the analysis of archaeological sites and artifacts, forensic anthropology, and the variety of human cultures and societies.

Faculty and staff members of the Department of Anthropology are involved in regional and international research and they will share their experiences with you
