Anthropology Degrees

Anthropology students explore the study of humans and their cultures, including prehistoric and historical archaeology, linguistics, biological anthropology and contemporary cultures around the world. Students also have opportunities to participate in summer field schools, which may support part-time employment, and are held to train undergraduate and graduate students in ethnographic and archeological field methods.

Faculty research and teaching areas include prehistoric archaeology of the Columbian Plateau region, historical archaeology, early 20th century immigrant communities in the Western U.S., Indian Peoples of North America and the Plateau region, indigenous people of South America, international development, U.S. culture, human and primate evolution and human variation.

Possible careers for anthropology students:

  • cultural resource management
  • forensic anthropology
  • governmental and non-governmental agencies
  • social services
  • international development
  • human rights organizations
  • museums
  • careers that involve cultural diversity
