The Department of Anthropology at the University at Buffalo offers a broad range of graduate studies in theoretical and methodological areas of anthropology. Anthropology combines the biological, historical and social sciences in a unique study of humankind and its undergraduate program includes physical anthropology, archaeology and cultural anthropology. Physical anthropology studies the origins, adaptations and evolution of the human species and of its primate relatives. Archaeology studies the historical development of human cultures by analyzing cultural remains and cultural anthropology studies the innate, shared and transmitted products of social groups. The department offers a premedical and predental concentration, which may be used in preparation for application to professional schools. It consists of two students groups, such as Anthropology Graduate Student Associating and Undergraduate Anthropology Club, that hold social events, speakers, student colloquia and share an interest in the study of human beings, both their culture and biology, in the past and the present. The university's Department of Anthropology is located in Buffalo, N.Y.
