Overview

Through archaeology, it attempts to shed light on the long history and evolution of humans and their ways of life. In these pursuits, anthropologists favor comparative and evolutionary perspectives. As a result, anthropological studies are wide-ranging with respect to topic and far-reaching with respect to both space and time.

An anthropology degree prepares students for excellent jobs and opens doors to many different career paths. As such, it leads not only to obvious career trajectories for graduate school in the field, but also serves as a major rated highly by law and medical school admissions officers, who value liberal arts majors and in particular majors that broaden the perspective of their prospective students.
