An undergraduate major in Anthropology can serve as the nucleus for a general liberal education, or as the prerequisite for graduate training qualifying a person for positions in (1) college and university teaching, (2) research, and (3) administrative and applied positions in government, development organizations, museums, and private businesses or corporations. Anthropology students develop a well-rounded professional education in cultural anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology. They learn what it means to be human through the study of culture and society, the biology and evolution of humans and other primates, and through the study of past human communities and material culture. Students learn the important historical and contemporary issues of our sub disciplines, and they learn what it means to be an Anthropologist and acquire an anthropological perspective on global issues. Students develop an appreciation of the value of cultural difference at the local, national and global levels. Students may obtain experience in archaeological, ethnographic and biological research. A bachelor of arts degree is obtained by fulfilling the college general education requirements plus 6 additional credits in Groups I and III.
