Major in Anthropology
Anthropologists study the cultures of the world, both past and present. Our programs in archaeology, cultural anthropology and biological anthropology explore these cultures from multiple perspectives.
As an anthropology major at SCU, you will study archaeology, cultural, and biological anthropology. These subfields explore primate and hominin evolution, the development of culture, and the complex facets of culture in the modern world. Anthropology provides a framework for understanding how people create and maintain groups, including family and business ‘culture,’ as well as the tensions and constructions of identity in multicultural societies. Students are introduced to a wide variety of field methods, field research, scientific approaches, and analyses in archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. The program also offers special emphases in applied anthropology, biological anthropology, and archaeology.
