This 2014, the UP Department of Anthropology celebrates the centennial of the first Anthropology course taught in the Philippines: Anthropology I (General Anthropology). In line with this, the Department is launching 'The History of Philippine Anthropology Lecture Series' under the H. Otley Beyer Museum Talks.
(January 15)—The Department of Anthropology of the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy (CSSP) held a simple ceremony at the Palma Hall Lobby on January 10 to mark the 100th year anniversary of anthropology as a course in the country.
In 1914 UP made history when it introduced Anthropology as a course in the Philippines, with H. Otley Beyer of the Department of History as its sole instructor. In 1917, Beyer and two other colleagues from the History Department established the Department of Anthropology.
