Anthropology at KSU
The Anthropology Department at Kent State combines the traditional subdivisions of biological anthropology, cultural anthropology and archaeology with twenty-first century approaches to their integration. Our goal is to improve the understanding of the origin and social behavior of our unique species within a comparative context.
Our faculty research combines ethnographic and archaeological investigations with a broad approach toward the biological basis of human evolution (neurobiology, genetics, biomechanics, experimental Archaeology, anthropological demography, primate ecology, the primate fossil record). We provide a diversity of research and educational pathways for both graduate and undergraduate students to explore, and are engaged in a variety of cooperative arrangements with other institutions and researchers, both nationally and internationally.
