Anthropology is the study of human diversity on a cross-cultural basis, aimed at achieving both scientific and humanistic education goals. Anthropology is comprised of four sub-fields: sociocultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology and anthropological linguistics. The BA/BS degrees are designed to provide the student with a solid general foundation in the discipline by emphasizing understanding of different cultures and peoples as well as different theories and methodologies. Although there is some opportunity for limited specialization, the department believes that such specialization should be deferred until graduate work.
