The Department of Anthropology, Geography, and Environmental Studies offers ethnographic, theoretical and methodological courses in five sub-disciplines: biological anthropology, prehistory and archaeology, linguistic anthropology, sociocultural anthropology, and applied anthropology.
The Anthropology - Archaeology and Biological Anthropology degree program at California State University East Bay bridges the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, preparing students for multidimensional careers.
