Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology

Anthropologists try to answer the fundamental question “What makes us human?” through a global and holistic approach. American anthropology includes four subfields:

  • Archaeology - the study of human past through material culture
  • Cultural Anthropology - the study of human cultures across the globe
  • Physical Anthropology - the study of human evolution and biological diversity
  • Linguistics - the study of human language and its meaning in social context

If you want to explore contemporary or past human cultures, how culture and environment can affect one’s biology, human evolution and our closely related nonhuman primates, or even the development and social maintenance of human languages, anthropology may be the right discipline for you.
