    Professor AFM Zakaria

    Head of the Department

    Welcome to the Department of Anthropology at Shahjalal University of Science & Technology, Sylhet. We are high-minded about the educational opportunities we offer our students both inside and outside the classroom. As anthropologists, we are committed to examining how humanity has developed disparities and similarities through time and space and how we can engage our students in these investigations. Excellence in research, teaching, and service is our department's cornerstone.
    Our full-time faculty members contribute excellent mentoring and career advising to both undergraduate and graduate majors, as well as opportunities for students to participate in active research projects. As a result, students find that our program provides a solid preparation for specialized study and a springboard to various careers in a wide range of fields.
    We offer a diverse array of vibrant, intellectually challenging courses for undergraduates working towards their Bachelor of Science degrees, with small class sizes and wide access to leading researchers in their respective fields. Our graduate program is relatively small and highly selective. It provides the highest quality anthropology education to our graduate students, preparing them for MPhil level studies or professional careers through concentrated coursework, fieldwork, and research.
