Welcome to the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences

The School of Anthropology celebrate its centennial throughout 2015!

Anthropology at the University of Arizona has excelled because of the quality and achievements of our faculty, alumni, current students and staff. Thank you for the part you have played during our first 100 years! We look forward to seeing many of you at our various centennial events throughout 2015. We also hope that this centennial year will inspire us all to celebrate the accomplishments that have brought us to this point, as well as dream of where our new centennial will take us, both individually and as an academic community. Happy 100th, SOA!
