 Our perspectives are worldwide, but we also study nearby communities, in trying to understand patterns of human physical differences, language, religion, marriage customs, conflict resolution or the evolution of societies themselves. 

Students may also concentrate their studies in Anthropology by choosing this as one of the two cognate disciplines required for Interdisciplinary Studies (ISS) Majors. This allows students to take introductory and advanced anthropology courses and combine them with a second cognate discipline and a specific set of ISS courses.

University of South Florida St Petersburg students majoring in other fields may find anthropology coursework an exciting and valuable supplement to their primary academic interest. A minor in anthropology has been developed with this purpose in mind. 

The minor program is structured to allow the student maximum flexibility in course selection within a broadly defined progression of anthropological interests. Thus, the student is able to tailor a minor in anthropology to best suit a special focus in the context of an overall curriculum.

Career options:

Students with an undergraduate degree often go on to graduate programs in Anthropology but also find employment in a wide variety of settings including: archeological contract companies; conducting research on urban community development; studying immigrant populations and how best to serve the health, social and educational needs of our increasingly diverse society.
