Biological (or Physical) Anthropology

Linguistic Anthropology

Sociocultural Anthropology

An Anthropology Degree prepares a student for the evolving job market of international (globalization), multiculturalism and other cultural shifts in today’s world.

Additionally, Students are exposed to investigative learning to look for solutions to issues facing humankind including sustainability, environmental, and the changing medical needs of the present generation.
