Program overview

The Bachelor of Arts program in anthropology focuses on and prepares you to be competent in three areas: cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology. Cultural Anthropology studies the interrelationship between culture and society to give meaning to the world around us. It explains the social and cultural similarities and differences demonstrated around the world. It analyzes and interprets human diversity through such dynamics as language, identity, and representation, family and religious systems, political and economic configurations, and the environments people have used to shape their societies. Careers can include academic appointments, market research, direction of nonprofits, cultural liaisons, civil affairs, policy making, and more. Biological Anthropology focuses on biological variation among living and past human populations, including the evolutionary pathways that have led humans to adapt to a variety of environments over the past 4 million years. You will gain practical knowledge in biomedical research, animal behavior, anatomy, and physiology. Careers can include academic appointments, human factors research, forensic science, grant writing, museum work, genetic research, and more. Archaeology examines human life using material remains of the past, whether 100,000 or only 100 years old. Courses convey substantive knowledge of past cultures and societies, artifact analysis, and archaeological fieldwork. Coursework in archaeology gives you a window into how studying our past can impact our future. Careers can include academic appointments, park ranger, field research, cultural resource management, historic preservation, and more.
