Department of Anthropology at SUNY Geneseo.
The SUNY Geneseo program in Anthropology is designed to provide a broad-based, comprehensive education in both the theoretical and practical aspects of Anthropology. Courses, laboratory experiences, learning experiences inside and outside the classroom setting are designed to serve the professional goals of students and faculty.

We are dedicated to providing a challenging academic and practical experience to our students within the college and service the local and regional community.

The program is designed to make a contribution to the profession of anthropology and to train a new generation of anthropologists to have a positive impact on the world.

The History of the Program
The Anthropology Department was founded in 1969 and the Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology was approved by SUNY Central in January 1970. The charge to the department was and continues to be the mission and general goals of the College and the quest for excellence in teaching and research within the discipline of anthropology. The mission and goals of the department include objectives and measurable outcomes that guide us in assessing our program and initiating program revisions. The goals that we have developed guide us in the allocations and reallocation of our current resources, and direct us in seeking internal and external funds to develop and enhance our service to the College, our students, and faculty professional development as well as contributions to Anthropology as a field.
