Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology Simon Fraser University




Course info


If you are interested in people – their lives, communities, values, realities, conflicts, and aspirations – then Anthropology offers ways of making sense of social life in all its complexity. When you study Anthropology, you develop a flexibility of mind that allows you to think about people’s interactions in new ways and imagine alternate social possibilities.

The Anthropology program in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences offers courses that investigate such human issues as global development, the arts, health and medicine, politics, sport, and language.
