The program in anthropology, offering a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)  degree, is designed to provide students with a strong general background in anthropology preparatory to graduate studies or employment in fields such as qualitative and applied research, archaeology, foreign relations, international business, international law, and social work. The curriculum requires all students, under the supervision of an anthropology faculty member, to complete a research project in some area of the student’s interest. Individual counseling is provided for all students.

Lower division work in anthropology emphasizes the four major divisions of the discipline: physical anthropology, archaeology, cultural anthropology, and linguistics. Upper division courses emphasize archaeology and cultural anthropology, with supporting courses in physical anthropology and linguistics offered at the junior level.

Learning Objectives

There are three learning objectives for anthropology students. The first is career and academic preparation, enabling students successfully to pursue higher degrees in their chosen specialties. The second learning objective is intensive exposure to human diversity, past and present, physical and cultural. This directly supports the third objective, which is to prepare all students to understand and function in an increasingly interconnected world.
