About the Department of Anthropology

The Department of Anthropology (DA-USP) has sought to cultivate and develop the humanities reflection field dedicated to human diversity. The characteristics of this discipline are reflected in the variety of subjects studied by the teachers and student researchers that integrate it, in the richness of disciplinary interfaces represented in the research lines and groups, in the undergraduate, postgraduate, improvement and extension courses it offers and organizes.
On graduation, he joins the Departments of Political Science and Sociology to graduate bachelors and graduates in Social Sciences, whose professional possibilities are of the most varied, including: teaching at all levels, acting in public and private bodies, research, public policy advice. Already at this stage of formation students can be integrated into research groups, oriented in Scientific Initiation research and encouraged to participate in the organization of events promoted by the Department of Anthropology.

In spite of all the pressures of the society that surrounds it, the Ticuna people - who live in the Alto Solimões, on the triple Brazil-Peru-Colombia border - preserved one of their most important ceremonies, the Festa da Moça Nova.
