The Department offers a Bachelor's Degree in Anthropology. Both the Anthropology major and minor offer a varied but well-structured exposure
to all four subfields of the discipline. The major consists of two parts.
The core curriculum introduces both data and theory in a logical sequence of courses
from basic to advanced and includes an introduction to Anthropological fieldwork.
The four degree tracks are intended to prepare students for specific careers in the
following areas: education, cultural resources management, social services, or post-secondary
teaching. The minor is a briefer but balanced survey of the discipline, designed to
complement any major whose graduates need to understand and deal with people from
different cultural backgrounds.
The Asian American Studies Program offers a minor with classes that focus upon the
history and contemporary experience of Asians in the United States. These courses
explore themes in local and ethnic history, trans-Pacific contact, cultural change
and adaptation, and interethnic relations. Those who major in business, social science,
international relations, and the human service professions recognize their relevance.

The American Indian Studies Minor is designed to foster culturally appropriate knowledge
and skills for those who may work for federal and/or state agencies having American
Indian Constituents, and/or tribes, tribal health centers, tribal organizations, urban
Indian organizations, or national Indian organizations.
