This major combines the study of social and cultural theory with the empirical study of everyday life, social organization, cultural and political expression, and forms of imagination across human cultures past and present, including those of the students themselves.

The Department of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins is one of the few in the country that focuses exclusively on socio-cultural anthropology, one of the four traditional subfields of the discipline. The department’s faculty conduct field research in the Americas, South Asia, the Middle East, and sub-Saharan Africa.
