Overview

Our Anthropology major from University of Maryland Baltimore County provides students with an understanding of cultural diversity, human social organization and social structure, and social research methods.

Program Overview

Anthropology courses help students gain an understanding of the complexity of current events within the U.S. and internationally.

Students have the opportunity to explore critical contemporary problems, globalization, urban life, family, gender, health, and technology, to name just a few topic areas, through the lens of anthropology. 

We also offer a three course sequence on physical and forensic anthropology. Finally, anthropology majors complete an independent research project as part of their capstone methods course.
