The anthropology curriculum makes available the following areas of study: archaeology, physical/biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, ethnology (including specific culture areas), theory, research methods, and a variety of special topics such as culture change, globalization, human ecology, cultural resource management, and forensic anthropology. Anthropology students are encouraged to supplement their studies in other areas such as biology, foreign languages, philosophy, mathematics, computer science, and other specialized areas in social and behavioral sciences that will enhance career opportunities.
The broad nature of anthropology makes it uniquely suited to engage a wide variety of disciplines, from the social sciences and area studies to the natural sciences. A minor in anthropology will be beneficial to future teachers who find themselves who find themselves increasingly involved in minority programs or teaching about homans in their urban, suburban and rural environments. A minor in biocultural anthropology will be of particular interest to students who wish to combine the study of biology or zoology with relevant topics in anthropology.
