A Message from the Department Chair

Welcome to our website. I hope you will find it to be a useful resource.

The SJSU anthropology department has been affected in significant ways by the public health crisis facing our region and the rest of the world. After more than a year of fully online courses, our department will be transitioning to a mix of in-person and online classes during the Fall 2021 semester. We are committed to offering a high-quality education to all students.

The anthropology office will be reopening four days a week (Monday through Thursday) beginning in August 2021, though all advising will continue to be conducted online. If you have questions related to one of your courses, please contact your course instructor via email. If you have advising questions or requests, please email me at roberto.gonzalez@sjsu.edu. For General Education advising, contact the ACCESS Success Center.

Please stay up to date by checking SJSU's Health Advisories website.

Thank you,
Roberto González, Professor and Chair
