Welcome to the Anthropology Department
The Anthropology major is a liberal arts degree with a broad base of information and understanding about human behavior. This unique, critical perspective provides a framework for understanding the many sub-cultural differences we meet every day. The Anthropology major can open many doors of opportunity and provide valuable training to successfully deal with the future.
There are four subdisciplines represented by the faculty and curricula of the University's Anthropology Department; Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics and Biological Anthropology.
