What is anthropology? Derived from the Greek anthropos (human) and logia (study), anthropology is the study of humankind from its beginnings to the present day.
Nothing human is alien to anthropology. Indeed, of the many disciplines that concern themselves with humans, only anthropology seeks to understand the whole panorama of human existence -- in geographic space and evolutionary time -- through comparative and holistic study.
Our programs focus on the four traditional subfields of anthropology: biological, archaeological, sociocultural and linguistic. We also have strengths in forensic anthropology and medical anthropology. Our faculty studies a broad array of topics and can be viewed at: https://www.utm.utoronto.ca/anthropology/people/full-time-faculty/about-our-faculty.
The common goal that links our vastly different projects is to advance knowledge of who we are and how we came to be that way. We are all dedicated to disseminating anthropological knowledge though teaching, research, writing and other forms of outreach. Our goal as a department is to train our anthropology students in the fundamentals of all the discipline's subfields. We aim to produce students who are curious about the world in its complexity, and who are well versed in the skills, theories and databases of one or more of our discipline's subfields.
Apart from being employed as faculty in universities and colleges, anthropologists find jobs in national and international governmental bodies, in international agencies dedicated to, for example, human rights, as well as in business and industry.
