Located in a historic neighborhood of the nation’s capital, Georgetown offers rigorous academic programs that examine global human cultures, cultural diversity, research and fieldwork in various parts of the world, social and racial justice, and student engagement on cultural issues. Our undergraduate department is a small community of teachers and researchers – anthropologists who are focused on intellectual inquiry, who are interested in contemporary issues, and who are determined to train students who want to make a difference in our world. Student majors and minors in our Department excel in academics, they are among the most diverse group within the University, and they are committed to thinking through racial and social justice issues of our era. Our faculty reach out and work with other undergraduate and graduate departments, training students of various disciples to appreciate the contributions that anthropology makes to the human project, and providing them with the skills to do social analysis.
