Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology Concentration, BA

Department: Anthropology 

Cultural anthropology uses a comparative, cross-cultural method to understand human culture and its variations. Students taking the cultural anthropology concentration pursue in-depth study in cultural anthropology along with exposure to applied, biological and archeology perspectives. Students take geographically-focused courses, upper-division topically-related courses, and a foreign language. Cultural anthropologists draw on qualitative and quantitative data in their research, based on firsthand participant observation fieldwork, to which students are exposed in upper division research methods and anthropological theory courses. Students completing the cultural anthropology concentration are well-positioned to enter a profession requiring global understandings and graduate study in anthropology or related fields.
