Anthropology Undergraduate Major (BA, BS, HBA, HBS)
Also available via Ecampus.
Anthropology seeks to promote awareness of the complexity and diversity of humanity and the human experience—past and present—in its cultural, biological, and ecological contexts. An Anthropology degree emphasizes cultural sensitivity and enables students to pursue a broad range of jobs requiring a liberal arts background; for example, education, human and governmental services, law, business, media and medicine. It prepares them especially well for work situations that emphasize cross-cultural awareness, international contacts and management of cultural resources. Anthropology curriculum provides a sound basis for later professional or graduate education. Four options are available: archaeology, biocultural, cultural/linguistic, and general anthropology. Completion of an option is required to earn a degree in Anthropology.
