Welcome to the Department of Anthropology at UTSC!

Anthropology is the academic discipline that engages with the subject of humanity in all its diversity across time and space. Anthropology is the original interdisciplinary discipline, with approaches that span the humanities, the social sciences and the natural sciences.

The Department of Anthropology at UTSC is among the best in Canada, composed of outstanding teachers and researchers. It is a centre of methodological excellence, specializing in the training of both sociocultural and evolutionary anthropology and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students can earn a BA or BSc depending on their area of specialization.

The Department of Anthropology at UTSC is deeply committed to pursuing policies of Social Justice. We lend our full support to anti-Black racism initiatives (including Black Lives Matter), anti-Asian racism initatives, and initiatives that are aimed at supporting Truth and Reconciliation with respect to Indigenous Communities.
