University rank #201 (ARWU) Athens, GA, United States
Anthropology is the study of the origin, development, and behavior of humankind. Specifically, this study provides the unique basis for the four major anthropological fields of study: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, and most recently, Applied Anthropology. We offer a bachelor degree in Anthropology at the University of Georgia. 

Overview

Regardless of which field of study is chosen, student’s gain solid anthropological knowledge of human cultural behavior and human-environment interaction. This broad understanding of culture behavior and human interaction provides for preparation for work in all sectors of the economy including business, government, education, and the nonprofit. These opportunities may include contract archaeology, jobs that involve working with other cultures, and employment requiring general skills of social science.

Ecological and environmental anthropology at the University of Georgia examines the past and present reciprocal relationship between humans and the natural world. Our archaeological, biological and cultural anthropology investigations yield critical knowledge of diverse dimensions of the human experience that we then apply in socially relevant ways.

Here at University of Georgia, students can either major or minor in Anthropology. Those who major in anthropology receive a Bachelors of Arts degree. All students majoring in anthropology must take ANTH 1102 (Introduction to Anthropology) or ANTH 2120H (Honors Introduction to Anthropology) as a prerequisite to major courses. Under the semester system, the major in anthropology requires at least one course in each of the three main subfields (biological, cultural, archaeological) plus additional elective courses in anthropology.

Possible Job Titles:

  • Career opportunities are limited with only an A.B. Degree, but include opportunities in contract archaeology, jobs that involve working with other cultures, and employment requiring general skills of social science. 
  • Some recent graduates have applied their training in public service agencies such as the Peace Corps and Ameri Corps.
