Overview

There are four major subfields of the Anthropology program from Kansas State University.

Physical anthropology explores the origins of human life and the biological bases of culture. 

Archaeology examines the development of human cultures from prehistory and ancient civilizations to historic and modern times. Linguistic anthropology focuses on the languages and dialects of the world and the relationships of language to thought and culture. 

Cultural anthropology studies human behavior by surveying the range and variety of cultural traditions throughout the world. S

Some anthropology majors generalize, while others specialize in one or more of the subfields.

Note

Many anthropology students prepare for the variety of occupations concerned with human relations by combining anthropological study with other training, frequently by majoring in two fields. Each program of study is worked out individually by a student and his or her advisor.
