The Anthropology Department strives to provide students with many opportunities to participate in hands-on laboratory and research experiences.

Anthropology Resources

In the Collections Room, we have an excellent specimen collection including casts of many fossil hominins, casts and real human skeletal material, non-human primates, and other vertebrates.

Additionally, we have a new state-of-the-art Research Facility including:

  • a high-resolution laser scanner (Laser Design Inc., RPS 120)
  • a 3D printer, a portable laser scanner (NextEngine)
  • a Microscribe Digitizer
  • student research computers

This equipment allows students and faculty to conduct research on primate and human morphology and material remains. In addition, the department has and offers:

  • a Sokkia Set 630R reflectorless total station
  • a Trimble Juno 5D GPS unit
  • Nikon SLR equipment used in archaeological and paleontological field work by faculty and students
