Undergraduate Study


Anthropology is the comparative study of people and their ways of life across the full temporal and spatial range of human experience. Cultural, biological, archaeological, and evolutionary ecological lines of evidence contribute to the anthropological enterprise of describing and explaining human diversity. The undergraduate program provides:

  • excellent training for those interested in pursuing a graduate degree in anthropology, or an advanced professional degree such as business, medicine, or law.
  • an interesting and imaginative course of study for those desiring a better understanding of the human biological and cultural experience through time and space.
  • a minor for students desiring an anthropological component to their general education in any department or college of the university, or in certificate programs such as criminology and corrections or international relations.
