Anthropology, the study of humans, includes sociocultural anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology. Courses offered by the Department of Anthropology span the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities and provide a broad understanding of human nature and society for students in other fields and for anthropology majors. The broad perspective on human culture and biology that anthropology offers can enhance studies in many other fields, including history, psychology, international studies, environmental studies, ecology and evolution, geography, earth system science, literature, political science, folklore, language study, art history, and public policy and management. These degrees entail work in the following subfields: archaeology and cultural or physical anthropology. Graduate students must demonstrate competence in three subfields, typically through work at the master’s level. Graduate students are members of the Association of Anthropological Graduate Students and are represented in the Student Senate. The MA requires competence in a second language.
