DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

Anthropology is the comparative study of people and their ways of life across the full temporal and spatial range of

human experience. Cultural, biological, archaeological, and evolutionary ecological lines of evidence contribute to the

anthropological enterprise of describing and explaining human diversity.

Purpose: The undergraduate program has three principle aims. It provides a major for those interested in

pursuing a graduate degree in anthropology, or an advanced professional degree such as business, medicine, or law.

It provides an interesting and imaginative course of study for those desiring a liberal, but rigorous, education and a

better

understanding of the human biological and cultural experience through time and space. Finally, it

provides a minor for students desiring an anthropological component to their general education in any

department or college of the university. A minor in anthropology may supplement a professional degree in allied

fields such as psychology, sociology, or biology; or in certificate programs such as criminology and corrections or

international relations. Students who wish to pursue a teaching emphasis in anthropology may do so through the

social science composite teaching major, in which students are prepared for secondary-level teaching in history

and three social science fields.

Anthropology Major: N
