Anthropology Undergraduate Program
Undergraduate Anthropology Program
The Department of Anthropology offers opportunities to learn about the diverse people of today's world, as well as about their biological and cultural origins. This area of study deals with ecology, society, biology, culture, and language, among other aspects of human life. In addition, anthropologists study history and evolution in both a cultural and biological framework.
Anthropology provides an excellent foundation for careers in a variety of professions, including medicine and health services, planning and community development, international relations and development, private business, government, law, journalism, museum work, and university teaching and research.
Students can major or minor in anthropology. The major is structured to provide the student with a broad overview of the major subdisciplines: cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, and archaeology. It also allows sufficient flexibility for a student to concentrate on a specific area of interest.
For additional information on major or minor requirements or other questions, contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Monica Udvardy (859-257-2710).
Please consult the Office of the Registrar Bulletin/Course Catalog for a complete description of requirements and procedures. Anthropology major and minor requirements are outlined on the links at the top of the page.

The purpose of the fieldtrip to the Daniel Boone National Forest (the Gorge) was to view firsthand the destruction caused by looting Kentucky archaeological sites.
