Anthropology at the University of Hawaiʻi 

The Department of Anthropology at UH Mānoa emphasizes an integrated approach to social science and humanistic study, using diverse methods that include archaeological, biological, and cultural analysis. Our focus on human diversity promotes global learning and cross-cultural understanding. We are committed to forms of critical inquiry, advocacy, and community engagement that recognize the value of local and regional pasts and contemporary perspectives in a globalizing world, and to developing knowledge of, and for, communities in Hawai'i, Oceania, and Asia.
