Understanding humanity in context

From prehistoric humanity all the way to contemporary cultural diversity, anthropologists engage with a wide range of issues and phenomena that affect individual and public life.

Waterloo's Anthropology research and teaching expertise covers three major sub-fields of the discipline: socio-cultural anthropology, archaeological anthropology, and biological (physical) anthropology.

The Anthropology department would like to wish Amreet Kular a heartfelt congratulations on winning the department award For Distinguished Academic Achievement at this years convocation. Congratulations, Amreet!
