As an anthropology major, you will engage in hands-on study in the four subfields: archaeology, cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, and linguistics.
The anthropology major offers field opportunities and a semester or a year abroad at the University of Exeter, England, in the Department of Archaeology. Most students will have an opportunity to work on archeological excavations or in the Archeology Laboratory. You may also choose an emphasis in any of the subfields of anthropology.
