Anthropology

Memorial's anthropology department is the largest in Atlantic Canada.  

Anthropology explores how people and groups across the globe engage with the social, cultural, political, and economic processes that shape the contemporary world.

Anthropologists spend extended periods of time with the people they study in order to understand their practices and beliefs and how they are entangled with systems of power.

Anthropologists facilitate cross-cultural understanding and critical engagement with global problems.
