Undergraduate Programs

The Anthropology Department offers three undergraduate majors.

Anthropology is the study of humankind and humaness in all of its many forms. Our faculty are experts in a wide range of subjects that relate to the human experience on our planet.

The Anthropology major leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree and introduces students to the four major subfields of American Anthropology: archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology.

The department offers a Linguistics major for students who wish to focus on the history, structure, function, and evolution of language. The Linguistics major leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics.

We also offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology which focuses on the evolutionary and physical components of the human experience. The human biology major shares course work with biology, psychology, public health and other areas of the physical sciences.
