Prospective Students


Baldwin Hall at the University of Georgia

The focus within the Department of Anthropology at the University of Georgia is ecological and environmental anthropology, which crosscuts the four traditional subfields. The decision to focus the program in this way was taken by the faculty in the late 1980s and over the course of the last 20 years. By taking this decision the Department has achieved high national and international visibility, and is now widely acknowledged as one of the best programs in ecological and environmental anthropology in the United States.


Experiences outside the classroom are part of a powerful learning cycle that expands, stretches and enhances academic foundations to create a whole new level of awareness and understanding. It’s a proving ground where students commit to exploring, discovering, and defining how what they learn will shape who they become and what they do next.
