Academic Programs

Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. Anthropologists take a broad approach to understanding the varieties of human experience.

Students with an Anthropology major enter careers in the anthropological sciences, such as cultural resource management, skeletal identification, zoological or museum technicians, government, the non-profit sector, education, healthcare and other areas that require contexts of science, cultural, social, and lingustic dynamics.

We offer both undergraduate and graduate degree programs that provide exposure to a foundation of the four interrelated fields: sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology.
