We are proud of the balance we've built between coursework and field work, providing significant on-the-ground experiences for faculty and students alike. Our portfolio of investigations proves that anthropology needn't restrict itself to distant (in place or time) peoples, but has a central role to play in understanding the complex interactions among all communities—including our own.

We invite you to read about our faculty's research and accomplishments below. We think you'll agree that anthropological research at UCD is as much about vibrant societies as it is about compelling scholarship.
