Our Undergraduate Program provides cross-cultural knowledge, critical thinking, and practical hands-on skills toward understanding the diversity of human experience through the anthropological subfields of archaeology, cultural anthropology, and biological anthropology. Students benefit from small classes in upper division major courses, one-on-one contact with faculty, and a broad range of course offerings.
The Anthropology Major and Minor provide excellent preparation for postgraduate training and/or careers in applied anthropology, museum work, public and contractual archaeology, education, forensic science, law, health/medicine, international business, marketing, human services, tourism and other fields that require an understanding of human diversity and adaptability.
