Anthropology seeks to understand and interpret the global range of human experience. The anthropological imagination draws upon biological, linguistic, historical and comparative perspectives in creating a systematic vision of how societies are patterned and how culture is experienced.
The anthropology program at Illinois Wesleyan offers exposure to the subdisciplines of the field, including the study of contemporary peoples (cultural anthropology), language and communication (linguistics), evolution and human variation (physical anthropology) and archaeology.

This is just an example four-year plan; your actual schedule can/will deviate from this sample. Your faculty advisor will work with you to match appropriate courses with your interests.
Once enrolled, all students will have a degree evaluation tool available to them on MyIWU. This will help you determine what courses are required to graduate on time.
