Undergraduate Programs

Anthropology students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research, where students have many opportunities for study in the broader world outside the classroom--locally, nationally, and internationally. Students can also become involved in several student organizations based in our department.

We seek to not only prepare students with a firm grounding in anthropology, but encourange them to apply anthropology in their careers.

Students may choose a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Anthropology and minors in: Anthropology, Ancient Civilizations, Archaeology, Evolutionary Studies, Celtic Studies, and Native American Studies.
