We offer undergraduate degrees in Anthropology, Behavioral Science, and Organizational Studies. Our department emphasizes skills including ethnographic interviewing, data analysis, and critical thinking. We are dedicated to helping students improve their writing and research abilities--skills valued by companies, government agencies, and non-profits. Each undergraduate major degree takes an interdisciplinary approach that encourages students to be creative, to cooperate and collaborate with other people, to work in teams, and to do hands-on problem solving.
Temporal Anisotropy . In a short video clip showing two billiard balls bouncing off each other, forward and backward in time are indistinguishable if one ignores friction and inelasticity. In a longer video of a billiards break, the future is the end in which the balls are no longer in a nicely ordered triangle. If causes can be attributed to effects as easily as effects can be attributed to causes, then causal laws do not distinguish past and future, and the future for an event is the direction of increasing disorder in the system. Traces and memories of the past are a localized increase in order at the expense of an increase in system-wide disorder. Due to statistical considerations, some systems can cycle between order and disorder. In such systems the direction locally considered to be future can vary over the timeline of the system.
