We are a three field department offering degrees in general anthropology with concentrations in natural sciences and social sciences at the undergraduate level. For non-majors, the department offers minors in archaeology, cultural anthropology, and forensic anthropology. The MA program awards a degree in general anthropology with opportunities to specialize in cultural anthropology, archaeology, or biological anthropology with thesis and non-thesis options. For particular topics (e.g., history and anthropology, ecological anthropology) and for particular regions, see faculty listings above. Undergraduate and graduate internship programs provide students practical work experience applying anthropology to solve real world problems.
A variety of merit-based, unpaid internships are available. Small stipend available.
