Anthropology students are equipped with intellectual and practical tools to engage with diverse populations and to appreciate the importance of intercultural communication. This is a holistic and comparative approach to understanding the human condition – i.e. from a cultural, biological, linguistic and archaeological perspective.
Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
- Identify and provide examples of key anthropological tenets.
- Explain how culture shapes perceptions of and assumptions about the world.
- Utilize ethnographic research methods.
- Evaluate the ethical ramifications of anthropological research.
- Articulate information in coherent and organized ways.
- Synthesize multiple perspectives to offer a balanced and critical assessment of contemporary issues and world problems.

A demonstrated anthropological emphasis indicates a commitment to diversity and intercultural communication. Anthropology offers exciting career opportunities in travel, social justice and working with people, and is fundamental to a well-rounded teaching degree in broadfield social studies certification. A degree in anthropology can lead to careers in research, teaching in university and museum settings, government, business, law, medicine and social services.
Recent graduates have gone on to graduate school programs in archaeology, cultural anthropology, public policy, public health, Native American studies and museum studies.
- Through the Department of Educational Studies, certification in sociology and in broadfield social studies are available for early adolescence/adolescence (grades 6-12)
