About the Degree Program

students in anthropology classroom

The study of anthropology is an exciting and dynamic field that explores the diversity of human culture and biology throughout time and space. As a discipline, anthropology brings together the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences to provide a holistic understanding of human history, behavior, and society.

Our Anthropology undergraduate degree program is rooted in the traditional four-field approach to anthropology, which includes archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. This approach allows students to gain a comprehensive understanding of the human experience, from our evolutionary past to the complexity of contemporary societies.
