The UCF Department of Anthropology represents the future of academic Anthropology. The department has a four-field and interdisciplinary approach that focuses on both the efficient delivery of anthropological concepts through a variety of teaching modalities as well as on active research. Through its combination of face-to-face interaction, web delivery, and old-style field research in archaeology, ethnography, forensics, and osteology-all involving undergraduate and graduate students-the department seeks to advance anthropological concepts by actively investigating questions of relevance to the modern world.
