Sociology & Anthropology

Anthropology Programs of Study

Anthropology is a broad, holistic field that seeks to understand people from earliest times to the present. A Bachelor of Arts will open you to opportunities in government, private business, community organizations, education, health organizations, research institutions and the media. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of anthropologists is projected to grow 19% through 2022, faster than the average for all occupations.

Students can pursue a major or minor in Anthropology in the classroom, online, or using a combination of traditional and online classes. Our program offers coursework in all four subfields of Anthropology: cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Students also have the opportunity to study abroad in Puerto Rico, Germany, India, Ecuador and Peru. For those interested in archaeology, we offer a field school.
