Anthropology

Curriculum BES.ANT.AS (U230A31)

Anthropology is the study of humanity and its cultural diversity and biological evolution and adaptation. Courses offered examine human behavior in ancient contexts (archaeology), contemporary society (cultural anthropology), and the biological evolution of humanity (biological anthropology). Students interested in anthropology as a four-year major should consult the catalog of their transfer school for social, physical and life science requirements appropriate to the first two years of study.
