The Department of Anthropology joins other departments, organizations, and student groups in the Binghamton University community in condemning all incidents of violence towards people of Asian and Pacific Island descent, which recently gained national attention with the killing of six Asian American women, as well as two other victims, in Atlanta, Georgia on March 16, 2021.

Anthropology Department

Binghamton's Anthropology Department offers undergraduate and graduate students an unparalleled education through its comprehensive curriculum that promotes an understanding of the variety of past and present human groups, the cultures and societies people create, the processes that animate cultural production and social life, and the processes that underlie human biological development and change. Students learn and apply the research methods and theoretical constructs used by anthropologists to investigate peoples and their social worlds. We offer programs in four anthropological subfields; archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and sociocultural anthropology.
