Anthropology, B.A.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
Indiana, PA, United States
Anthropologists seek to understand humanity, how we came to be the way we are, in which ways we differ, and how we are all the same. We do this by studying our evolution, the societies we developed throughout our history, and the diversity of cultural patterns we have developed across the world. We offer a bachelor degree in Anthropology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Aside from the unique worldview that anthropologists gain from studying humanity in this way, the skillsets we develop in our professional training are in high demand for a wide range of careers. 

Forensic anthropologists are trained to work in labs for the identification of human remains, archaeologists learn how to study and handle prehistoric remains to meet state and federal laws, and cultural anthropologists learn how to engage directly with the public, as well as with governmental and non-profit agencies on environmental and social issues. 

With our Anthropology BA at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania you’ll have the chance to gain expertise on a wide range of techniques and topics associated with the four subdisciplines of Anthropology: sociocultural, biological, linguistic, and archaeology.

Courses in the Department of Anthropology at IUP are designed to provide you with the needed information and experience to put your Anthropology BA to use in a professional career upon finishing your BA.
