Number of Faculty

The 22 faculty members in the UC Davis Department of Anthropology have attained globally renowned expertise in their specialties.

The Department of Anthropology has great breadth, combined with penetrating depth in focused areas of research in our two distinct but related disciplinary wings: Evolutionary Anthropology and Sociocultural Anthropology.

Our Evolutionary Wing faculty members include biological anthropologists and archaeologists who specialize in the study of human and primate biology and behavior in ecological contexts over archaeological and evolutionary timescales.

Our Sociocultural Wing faculty members encompass social, cultural, and linguistic anthropologists committed to understanding how people organize their lives and interpret their circumstances in the modern and postmodern world.
