As an anthropology major, you will study in four areas: archeology, cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, and linguistics. The anthropology major requires a year abroad at the University of Exeter, Exeter, England, in the Department of Archaeology. This provides you with a major that is especially strong in ecologically oriented archeology. Most students will have an opportunity to work on archeological excavations or in the Archeology Laboratory. You also can choose an emphasis in the area of museum techniques.
