What does it mean to be human? That’s the question you’ll aim to answer when you study anthropology.

In this program, you’ll explore past and present human societies, with classes in introductory anthropology, cultural anthropology, primitive technology, and the cultures of North America's native peoples. The field includes four areas: archeology, cultural anthropology, linguistics and biological anthropology.

Whether you want to teach, work in a museum, dig at an archeology site or study cultures in an exotic place, this program could put you on the path toward a career in anthropology. A degree in this field is also excellent preparation for opportunities in law, business, public service, medicine, environmental sustainability and resources management.

You and your advisor will use this program map as a starting point in creating your own personal education plan, customized to your needs and goals.
