The Department of Anthropology office is located at 380 Academic Center in the Ellicott Complex. The department holds classes in centrally scheduled spaces throughout the campus, which include traditional classrooms and lecture halls that can accommodate the program’s teaching philosophies.
Archaeology students who enroll in the department-sponsored field school have the opportunity to conduct artifact identification and material analysis in a working Cultural Resource Management (CRM) firm, UB’s Archaeological Survey.
The Cultural Anthropology program provides students with opportunities to learn about and conduct research on many contemporary issues, including migration, environmental policies, warfare, medical care, and religion around the world.
The Biological Anthropology program has two specialized lab spaces: a wet lab to conduct specimen dissections and a morphology dry lab outfitted with a skeletal collection. In addition, there are several research groups such as the Buffalo Human Evolutionary Morphology Lab, the Hominin Movement Lab, and the Applied Primate Behavioral Evolution Lab.
The Marian E. White Anthropology Research Museum and Anthropology Library provide resources to undergraduate students conducting research.
