Anthropology Programs

Linda Blan


Why do we do the things we do? Is it biology? Or culture? In the Anthropology Department, we're finding out! We study the factors that influence human behavior. This helps us understand the differences in how humans look and live.

Anthropology is divided into four subfields: physical anthropology (the study of man as a biological entity), cultural/ethnology (the study of living cultures), archaeology (the study of past cultures), and linguistics (the study of language and language origins). Anthropology will add a unique dimension to your education…take a class and see!

Students Dig Anthropology

"I am now a history major with a minor in anthropology at the University of Arizona. Your classes inspired me to minor in anthropology and really helped me at the U of A. The caste, class, and various other systems are less confusing and I am glad I took your classes. I am sure you are an inspiration to so many others."


“I'm back to working on my anthropology major. I couldn't be happier about that. It truly is the only thing that fascinates me to the point of complete captivation. I'm actually applying to do a study abroad this summer in Ireland. I'd get to participate in an archeological dig, and I'm so excited! Thank you for encouraging me to continue to pursue this goal."

The job market for anthropologists and archaeologists is expected to grow much faster than the average—28% by 2018.

We Decipher the Process

Anthropology (AA)

If you’re planning a career in education, psychology, medicine, forestry, geology, social services, or criminal justice, you’ll benefit from taking anthropology courses.

This associate of arts degree program meets the requirements for the first two years of a four-year bachelor’s program at a college or university. That means you can transfer in as a junior. Most anthropology classes will transfer as social science credit, but may also satisfy other requirements. Please consult the official transfer guide to tailor your curriculum, since degree requirements differ.
