Undergraduate Program


Students in our undergraduate program learn to become competent anthropologists. They imbibe the holistic approach to understanding humankind, along with their opportunity to focus more deeply on a particular aspect of anthropology. They ask anthropological questions and make anthropological observations.

Through classes, the Anthropology Club, internships, collaborations on faculty research, gradutate mentorship, and independent research, students receive a well-rounded grounding in the entire range of the field of anthropology.

Arts and Letters students from every major succeed in business, graduate or professional school, or full-time service. Learn more about the career outcomes of all of our graduates, including Anthropology majors.
