Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humans and their culture, both past and present.

In the Anthropology Department, we study the culture, history, and languages of Native Americans with a heavy focus on the people who have lived in this region for at least 13,000 years.

Our research and collections make us a leading center for Chumash cultural studies.

Contact us to bring in artifacts for identification.
