Anthropology, the study of humans, provides students with a perspective on the nature of humankind over time and in different environments. It is concerned with humans as biological beings (biological anthropology), with prehistory and cultural evolution (archaeology), and with how humans order their worlds socially and culturally (social/cultural anthropology), as well as with the nature of human language (linguistic anthropology). The Department of Anthropology offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology. Undergraduate majors are encouraged to take a wide range of courses in archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. Anthropologists are frequently teachers and/or researchers in colleges and universities, or, alternatively, they work for public and private agencies. Within these areas, they may be specifically concerned with historic or cultural resource preservation or cross-cultural competencies in such areas as medicine, community development, education, tourism, business, and other specialties.
