Four-Year Degree Plans
Two degree options
The anthropology program provides two options for completing your degree in anthropology: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. Both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science in anthropology are non-comprehensive degree options, which require that you complete a minor.
The Bachelor of Arts degree offers a broad liberal arts education that includes courses in foreign language, world history, philosophy and fine arts, as well as 30 hours in anthropology.
The Bachelor of Science degree requires 39 hours in anthropology and offers a greater degree of specialization in the field than the BA.
