Anthropology, Bachelor

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration
Davidson, NC, United States
The anthropology major provides you with a firm grounding in social theory and the comparative study of human diversity through time and in different world regions.

Overview

Course offerings provide introductions to three of the four sub-disciplines of anthropology (sociocultural, biocultural, and archaeological anthropology; linguistics is not currently being offered) and a number of area surveys, supplemented by seminars on anthropological theory and more specialized topics. Elective courses allow you to tailor your major to particular intellectual or career goals, as do independent studies. Many of the upper level courses can be directed to specific regions if you are interested in a particular region of the world.

Anthropology is particularly exciting for those students who want active engagement with their studies. All majors complete a methods requirement involving independent research. Student projects may involve interviewing informants for family histories, researching archives on historical topics, studying ethnic performances or festivals, or a myriad of other possibilities.
