Welcome to the Department of Anthropology at UTSC!

The Anthropology Department at UTSC joins with our colleagues in the Department of Historical and Cultural Studies in supporting faculty who are bringing their expertise to the public conversation on the current war in Palestine/Israel.  We additionally wish to signal our support and empathy for our students for whom the current situation may be upsetting or troubling.  To that end, we have created an open forum to receive questions or comments from students.  You are welcome to remain anonymous if you choose.  Please note that any endorsements of violence (either implicit or explicit) will be removed, as will any comments or questions that make use of profanity.

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.
