Anthropology is the study of human life. At Waikato we take you on an exploration of socio-cultural anthropology, the investigation of the immense richness and diversity of human social and cultural life.

Anthropologists seek to understand how humans build meaningful lives, whether living in a small village or a large metropolitan area.

By studying Anthropology, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of humanity and the societies that we live in. The anthropologists at Waikato share a common interest in the Pacific region, which is a focus of our teaching and research.

Complementary subjects of Anthropology include Geography, History, Human Development, Māori and Pacific Development, Psychology, and Sociology.
