Beauty may be skin deep, but like archaeology, it’s what lies beneath the surface that counts. That’s certainly true for Dr. Elizabeth Sobel, associate professor of anthropology at Missouri State University, who thinks the secrets of the past reveal a great deal about who we are today.
Look deeper into research and scholarly activities.
Research is an essential contribution by the University, and Missouri State encourages and facilitates research for three primary reasons:
Contributes to the public good
Both applied and basic research have the potential to enhance the quality of life for all.
Encourages faculty development
Research keeps faculty current in the issues and methods driving their respective disciplines.
Enhances the educational process
Research ensures "cutting edge" professors engage students and promote academic skills.
