Mātauranga Tikanga Tangata



Anthropology is a broad and exciting area of study for anyone of any age and background. If you are interested in the history of our existence, languages and cultures, identity, religion, and more, then Anthropology is for you.

At UC, you will learn about our collective history, and explore future issues like the evolving role of technology in our lives, power structures and systemic issues, and where our global culture might be heading.
