A Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of Idaho gives you an advanced understanding of cultural diversity – past and present. You’ll learn to see the world through a new lens, and you’ll graduate with the broad perspective and investigative tools you need for a successful career in the wide-ranging field of anthropology. The degree is also excellent preparation for careers in social service, business, nonprofit, government and academia.
Through the study of human cultures, anthropology majors develop a meaningful perspective of the American society and its place among others. You’ll take courses that explore humanity’s evolutionary past, archaeology (study of those who lived long ago), ethnography (study of those who are living now), physical and linguistic differences among people, and other topics related to anthropology.
You will also have convenient access to the department’s artifact collections, well-equipped laboratories, and top faculty, which is renowned for leading expertise in historical archaeology and the archaeology and cultural study of the native American tribes of the North American plateau.
