Anthropology is the study of humankind. It studies all facets of society and culture. The anthropologist Eric Wolf once described anthropology as "the most scientific of the humanities, and the most humanistic of the sciences." The student-led and run anthropology course union operates as a resource and a means for UBC Okanagan anthropology students to meet and converse with each other. The union conveys awareness and helps to create an understanding of the important issues in the Okanagan and the world.
The anthropology student union encourages and helps students to achieve success in their anthropological endeavors. The experiences that are attained by joining the course union help to develop a diverse, variety of knowledge and awareness to not only the individual, but to the anthropology department and the UBC Okanagan campus as a whole. Our members are knowledgeable in all four disciplines of Anthropology: Archaeological, Biological, Linguistic and Cultural. Come join our group, it’s a whole lot of fun!
