Kathryn Sorensen, PhD
Dr. Kathryn Sorensen is an anthropologist with a specialty in Maya archaeology, and has many years of teaching experience at universities and colleges here in the United States. She also has years of fieldwork experience in the Yucatán Peninsula, México and Panama.
Dr. Sorensen completed a bachelor of science from the University of California, Riverside, and earned a Master of Arts and a Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of California, Riverside. As a returning student (she didn't even start college until she was 40 years old!), Dr. Sorensen is familiar with the challenges and benefits of working, being a full-time student and parent. In her spare time she enjoys being with her family, reading, traveling, science fiction, and playing with her two German Shepherds, Thor and Loki.
Believing her life experiences and training adds another dimension to her teaching, Dr. Sorensen hopes that you will find anthropology to be as fascinating and relevant as she does.
