Undergraduate Majors and Minors
The Department of Anthropology offers a Bachelor of Arts and a minor in anthropology .
Four curricular tracks are available for undergraduate anthropology majors:
The international business track recognizes the influence of culture, geography, history, economy, law, and political science on business in the global market place. Graduates with this degree will be broadly educated, comfortable with cultural diversity, and trained in the basics of modern business. Students may choose to take selected courses in the Collins College of Business for a B.A. degree or pursue a M.B.A. degree by accumulating additional advanced course credit.
Students entering law school upon graduation are required to exhibit a breadth of knowledge as well as analytical ability. The track in law and international affairs provides this background. Students with good academic records are strong candidates for admission to the nation’s best law schools, as well as to graduate programs in international affairs. The international affairs track leads to careers in foreign analysis with government and private research organizations, with policy-oriented government agencies, and with international governmental and non-governmental organizations.
Careers in social work and social services generally require a master of social work degree. The TU degree in anthropology/social services is excellent preparation for this. Students supplement anthropology courses with classes in sociology, psychology, and business administration that prepare them for careers in social service agencies.
The general anthropology degree prepares students for graduate study in anthropology leading to college teaching, research, museum work, or any career that is enriched by cross-cultural and social understanding.
