Anthropology is the study of humans and their cultures. The discipline includes both the comparative study of worldwide variations in beliefs and behaviors and the evolution of humankind from prehistoric to contemporary times. Anthropology Education students interested in teaching anthropology at the secondary school level are expected to fulfill the requirements for an anthropology major as well as the set of social science (history, geography, economics, etc.) and education courses required by the state for secondary school teaching. Because many anthropology courses satisfy general education requirements in the College of Arts and Sciences and the department has no pattern of prerequisites for its courses, the department encourages new students to invest more of their educational experience during the freshman and sophomore years in sampling among the colleges’ and university’s curricula than in taking courses in anthropology. A student who has taken one course in each of the subdisciplines of anthropology offered by the department: - social and cultural, biological and archaeology – during the first two years will be able to satisfy the major requirements in the remaining two. A high proportion of anthropology majors spend a semester or session abroad, and have second major and/or minor, opportunities we strongly encourage. Students are also urged to pursue internships outside the university in areas that complement their academic programs. Where appropriate, and with sufficient lead time for faculty coordination, students may seek up to 6 academic credits for faculty directed research.
