Anthropology at Laurier is a unique program in Canada. It specializes in researching and teaching the ethnography of the contemporary world.
Anthropology opens students to the many ways in which people in different places and different times have gone about the task of being human. Anthropologists explore human nature and human society through the comparative study of such things as family, marriage, religious and spiritual practices, livelihoods, creativity, settlement of legal disputes, power and social inequality, and much more. Laurier's Anthropology program specializes in Sociocultural Anthropology which trains students in the analytical skills needed to investigate and understand the cultural acquisition of diverse beliefs and behaviours. Anthropology challenges the way in which non-European people have been represented in Western thought. As well, it questions the uneven distribution of power between the North and the South. If you are interested in multiculturalism and human diversity, then think about majoring in anthropology or combining anthropology with another program of study.
