Physical Anthropology

Physical Anthropology is the study of humans as biological organisms, with a focus on human behavior, biology and evolution. Physical Anthropologists study humans around the world, fossils, and our closest relatives, primates. At Eastern Kentucky University, students learn human anatomy and evolution through studying our human skeletal collection, fossil cast collection, and by observing primate behavior in regional zoos. We also have a research accord to study primates in Madagascar.
