What Can You Do With A Major In Anthropology?

The Anthropology Program seeks to provide a greater understanding of humankind from a holistic perspective. To account for the complexity of humankind anthropologists focus on the cultural adaptations and diversity of the past (archaeology), the socio-cultural institutions and symbolic constructs in a cross-cultural perspective (socio-cultural anthropology), the origin, nature, and uses of human language (linguistics) and the evolution of human biology and variation (physical anthropology). Anthropology utilizes theories and methods from the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities, to examine humankind.
