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.
- Anthropology major
- Three optional concentrations
- A minor
To declare a major, please schedule an appointment with Keri Canada by contacting the College of Liberal Arts Academic Support Center. Keri Canada is the Academic Success Coordinator for on-campus and online (not sure about this – Brenda does this currently, but her last day is 12/31) students in the Department of Anthropology. She is available to help students declare a major, gives registration codes, and assists majors with their undergraduate education plan.
For prospective students interested in Anthropology, we offer tours of our labs & centers, encourage college class visits, and give the option of chatting with one of our faculty and staff.
