Anthropology, Cultural Track (BA)

What is An Anthropology, Cultural Track (BA) Degree?

Anthropology looks at societies and cultures all over the world, looking at how they began and how they continue.  The Cultural Track focuses on the study of cultures around the world from the past and present–how different cultures vary in practices and beliefs, and how they associate themselves into groups that have special meanings for them.

In addition to general education courses, you’ll take courses in cultural anthropology; the anthropology of race; the anthropology of marriage and family, the anthropology of aging, the politics of reproduction, and others.  This degree will prepare you for careers in government, international affairs, public health, cultural resource management, or urban and regional planning, or for further graduate study in the field so you can potentially teach or do research.
