Anthropology is a broad academic field with four primary subfields (Cultural Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, Anthropological Linguistics, and Archeology). The Anthropology Graduate program tracks represent two of these four subfields. In general, it seeks to provide for its students opportunities to maximize academic and technical skills in the science of Anthropology and Archeology via outstanding classroom, lab, and field experiences.
The program emphasizes three areas, each or any combination of which students may choose for specialization:
The curriculum is founded on anthropological and archaeological theory and hands-on training, which students apply to their research and the unique scientific study they are expected to complete for graduation.
The program also offers exposure to cutting-edge technology and encourages its students to be active members of the professional scientific community. It is intended for highly motivated and talented students who plan on becoming a professional archeologist or going on to doctoral study.
