Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work


 In a rapidly globalizing and changing world, anthropologists are the best equipped professionals  to identify and meet the challenges of our shifting cultural realities.

At Kansas State University, the Anthropology Program offers unique opportunities to undergraduates, including: teaching and research assistant experiences, and  hands-on training in digital ethnography, archaeology, linguistic anthropology, forensic anthropology, osteology and human evolution. Such experiences propel our students to win top scholarships,  attend the best graduate programs in the world, and obtain highly desirable jobs in a wide range of anthropological fields, as well as in  medicine, law, marketing, public service, and education. 

Anthropology is a frame of mind.


Our faculty covers all four major subfields of anthropology and their dedication to serving undergraduate students has won them several of the most prestigious university, state, and national teaching awards. The dedication of our faculty, and success of our students has brought world-wide recognition to the Anthropology Program at Kansas State University.
