ANTHROPOLOGY

Anthropology is the study of people, both ancient and contemporary, in their biological, archaeological, cultural, and linguistic context. Anthropology uses a holistic approach to integrate findings from the social sciences, natural sciences, and the humanities.  Professional opportunities include careers in archaeology, linguistics, the social and natural sciences, health care, international affairs, urban renewal, social welfare, museum work, the National Park Service, conservation programs, ergonomics, and forensics.
