The University of Maryland, College Park is the flagship campus of the University System of Maryland. With an enrollment of over 30,000 students, Maryland is the largest university in the state and the largest in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. The University is committed to achieving excellence as the State's primary center of research and graduate education. The campus benefits from the proximity and networked connections with the broader Washington and Baltimore metropolitan communities. The University is committed to attracting and retaining outstanding and diverse faculty and staff that will enhance our stature of preeminence in our three missions of teaching, scholarship, and full engagement in our community, the state of Maryland, and in the world. The Department of Anthropology is known for its strong theoretical emphasis and is nationally recognized for its applied methodological focus. Our faculty expertise center on three main core programs of focus—health, heritage, and environment. We have a demonstrated commitment to documenting, preserving and transmitting the knowledge of the past, as well as to illuminating and confronting the challenges of the present. Anthropology is unique at the University of Maryland because of our ability to teach smaller than average class sizes, which encourages the development of strong student-faculty mentoring relationships. We have five degree programs—BA/BS, MAA, MAA/MHP, MPS (CHRM) and Ph.D., and we continue to attract the best and brightest students.
