Anthropology Undergraduate Programs

Exploring the Human Condition

In the undergraduate anthropology program, students learn about human cultural and biological variation, in the past and present. We are focused on understanding the structure of the social, environmental, political, and economic systems in which humans operate. Our department focuses on three areas within anthropology including archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology.

Online Major

In addition to our on-campus major and minor, we offer a CSU Online Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology.
