Anthropologists examine the human condition across time and space. The Department of Anthropology at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign has long been a leader in our discipline through active programs in archeology, biological anthropology, and sociocultural and linguistic anthropology. We offer an undergraduate major as well as doctoral degree programs. In our graduate programs some 80 graduate students are engaged in doctoral research that will shape the future of our discipline. Our 31 full-time faculty and numerous affiliated faculty continue longstanding departmental strengths in regional studies and in the foundations of anthropological theory, while playing a leading role in a number of fields of current theoretical interest in anthropology. In recent years we have added a number of excellent young anthropologists to our faculty making this a particularly vibrant and exciting time in our history.
