Anthropology

The Anthropology Program is located in the Department of Sociology & Anthropology within the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.  It provides undergraduate education in anthropology for students wishing to complete degrees that include the Anthropology Major, Anthropology Minor, Archaeological Technician Certificate or Applied Associate of Science Degree, or BIS emphases.  It also serves students seeking general education, diversity credits, or who wish to take anthropology courses for interest, and provides appropriate anthropological services, resources, and activities to the region that the university serves.  Unique features of the program include a holistic, four-field approach to anthropology with its fields of archaeology, linguistics, ethnology and biological anthropology.  The anthropological philosophical perspective views humans and their behavior within the context of long-term interactions and adaptations among biological, cultural, and environmental factors.  The major has a two-track program option: General Anthropology or Archaeology.  The program also offers both an Archaeological Field School and a two-week Study-Abroad experience program during most summers.
