The anthropology option within the global cultures and languages major trains its students in the holistic study of humanity, both past and present. The program focuses on anthropological method, theory and practice with a focus on the interaction between human culture, biology and environment.

We provide training in all subfields of the discipline: sociocultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, archaeology and biological anthropology. The academic interests of our students range from prehistoric North American archaeology to forensic anthropology and from linguistics to the anthropology of religion. The curriculum is designed to prepare students for graduate study or entry-level positions in the field.

Anthropology students will…
  • Interact with qualified faculty in a small class environment.
  • Gain hands-on experience through internships, practica and field work.
  • Be prepared for graduate studies and entry-level positions in museum, government, academic and private sector settings.
  • Have access to laboratory facilities and study-abroad programs.
