About Us


The University of the Philippines Department of Anthropology, founded in 1917, is one of the earliest academic anthropology programs in Asia. The Department is now part of the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, UP Diliman. It offers undergraduate and graduate courses in the four fields of anthropology: cultural/social anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. The courses are designed to help students understand human biological and cultural diversity, and the forces that shape cultural evolution and social change. The Department promotes global perspective and comparative approach in anthropology that is contextualized by doing ethnographic fieldwork, producing cultural knowledge that is engaged, critical and reflexive.

Why Anthropology?


“I became interested in Anthropology when I learned about its holistic approach to learning about humans and culture. I remembered how a new door of curiosity was opened when we discussed in class how our physical body was mediated by culture, ending the debate of nature versus nurture. Understanding the past through artifacts and analyzing how we utilize language for a variety of reasons gave me a better understanding of who we really are. Lastly, anthropology’s interest in similarities and differences, and relations of power, within and among cultures of the world, and love for understanding about fellow humans or kapwa, gives  balance to the hearts and minds of students in this discipline.” -a graduate student of Anthropology
