Program description

Anthropology is the biological and sociocultural study of humans from pre-human ancestors to the present, including small- and large-scale communities. Archaeological, biological, linguistic, and sociocultural anthropology are taught. While a few mandatory courses will ensure that all program students have a basic understanding of anthropological approaches, students can choose courses from the program and other parts of the curriculum to focus on specific interests. 

Anthropology prepares students for graduate programs (Archaeology, Biological and Sociocultural Anthropology, Museology), professional programs (Law, Library and Information Science, Communicative Disorders, Social Work, Education, etc.), and government or private sector employment. Early discussions with program advisors should focus on professional ambitions.
