The B.A. program is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in the diversity of human biology and culture over time. Students are able to shape their particular specialty within anthropology while developing research skills for life after graduation. The B.A. degree works well as a stand-alone major or when paired with another major for students pursuing diverse careers. Of the required 38 credit hours of anthropology, at least three credit hours must be at the 4000 level or higher.
