Anthropology Program

The study of anthropology is greatly enriched by the presence of a large and varied range of scholars at the five campuses who meet regularly, share their research, and lecture in each other's classes.

As part of a wider collaborative effort to expand the opportunities for undergraduate study and field work in medical anthropology and related areas, the anthropologists helped to develop a Five College Certificate Program in Culture, Health, and Science (CHS).

One of their joint projects is an annual day-long Five College Anthropology Conference in which undergraduates present their research to the faculty and to their peers at all the campuses.

The 2022 Anthropology Conference was held at Mount Holyoke College.

The 2023 Conference will be held at Smith College on April 29. Submissions are due on Monday, March 20, 2023. Please follow this link for more information.
