Anthropology, Bachelor

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months


Anthropology considers such questions as why and how people from distant parts of the world are different and the same, how the human species has evolved over millions of years, and how individuals understand and operate in different cultural settings.

The Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree program in anthropology at the University of Southern Indiana prepares students for the professional world and opens doors to various career paths. Courses provide global information and thinking skills critical to such fields as international business and law, public health, human resources, teaching, advocacy, and public service.

While the job market for university-based anthropologists is relatively steady, demand for anthropological training is increasing in other areas. There is a growing need for analysts and researchers with sharp thinking skills who can manage, evaluate, and interpret information on human culture and behavior.
