Behavioral and Social Sciences Division
The anthropology program provides a foundation in the fields of socio-cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology as they relate to the physical and behavioral aspects of the world’s populations of the past and the present. Students in this program will be able to discern the basic issues facing anthropologists, apply the methodologies that anthropologists use to approach the problems in the field, and critically evaluate the record of past accomplishments. This major prepares students for career opportunities in museums, educational, archeological and medical institutions, international development consulting organizations, social welfare, and state and national management entities. Competencies will be assessed regularly through examinations and projects.
