What makes anthropologists different from other scientists is their belief that people can be understood only if they are studied from a number of points of view. Anthropologists look for interactions among culture, biology, and the external environment.
Those viewpoints can be studied in our bachelor’s degree program. In this major, you’ll study anthropology in four unique subfields: archaeology, cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and linguistics. You'll gain skills and knowledge for a professional career or graduate study.
If you already have a bachelor’s degree, we encourage you to consider our master’s degree program. This course of study provides a broad understanding of anthropology, yet you’ll be able to concentrate in a specific area of the field. This foundation will equip you for career success or doctoral studies.
If you have chosen a different major, you can still pursue a minor in anthropology.
