Overview

Anthropology at Baylor University utilizes a comparative approach between people/populations and among different species to understand the forces that have shaped their ways of life

You are a human. What could be more rewarding than studying the origins and diversity of human biology and behavior? By studying Anthropology, you open the door to the opportunity to reflect on how and why different people and populations have developed similar and different characteristics in their biology and behaviors.

Graduates frequently go on to complete advanced studies in archaeology, biological anthropology, applied anthropology, medical anthropology, history, museum studies, geology, social work, medicine, public health, law, law enforcement, forensics, education, and others. Because Anthropology is a subject of constant change, it equips people with the transferable skills necessary to fulfill a variety of jobs, from government, private, and non-profit positions in healthcare, education, conservation, among many others.
