The Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology includes courses in general anthropology; its four subfields (Archaeology, Bioanthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Social/Cultural Anthropology); as well as integrative capstone seminars; and training in ethnography, laboratory methods, museum studies, general anthropology; and in several field schools.
- Archaeology explores the material remains of peoples and cultures in the recent and distant past, seeking fragmentary clues to understand how people once lived, and how the human past connects to the present.
- Bioanthropology examines the adaptations, variation, health and evolutionary history of humans and their primate relatives, studying human biology in the context of human culture and behavior.
- Linguistic Anthropology studies language and the ways people communicate in the context of social and cultural diversity, using different media, past and present.
- Social & Cultural Anthropology studies contemporary and historical cultures and societies, worldwide, linking local and global, and using diverse ethnographic approaches to understanding contemporary issues and challenges to our common humanity.
