College graduates with a degree in anthropology thrive in social services, teaching, law, medicine and health professions, government, NGOs, international relations, business, bioscience, technology, and many more lines of work. Anthropology prepares college graduates to enter a broad range of jobs and professions by providing them with research, writing, and analytical skills that will enable them to confront problems, issues, and situations that require cultural knowledge and sensitivity. 

We offer both a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Science degree in anthropology.

The Bachelor of Arts degree program is geared toward students interested in specializing in anthropology and focusing on one of the subdisciplines offered by the department.

  • Archaeology, the study of the material remains of past societies. 
  • Biological anthropology, the study of human evolution and human biological diversity. 
  • Cultural anthropology, the study of contemporary societies. 

The Bachelor of Science degree is recommended for students planning to attend medical or dental school.
