The Anthropology major at the University of Central Missouri is for students planning to attend graduate school or seeking employment in museums, forensic science labs, or cultural resource management.
Anthropology’s goal is to explore and describe the nature of humans as evolving, cultural beings. It helps you become more than an intellectual tourist, isolated from others. Instead, you become eager and able to contribute to the rich diversity of the rapidly changing world.
Whether working on a field school excavation, doing ethnographic interviews or examining biological specimens in a lab, Anthropology provides many opportunities for engaged experiential learning. Click here to see the brochure for the Anthropology degree.
You can go to graduate school in Anthropology or seek employment in museums, forensic science labs, or cultural resources management.
You will participate in field-based experiences through study tours of England, Cuba, or the Middle East, field schools that involve excavations, and/or museum and archival internships.
The Anthropology program leads an annual study abroad experience to London.
Anthropology offers a summer field school every other summer. Get your hands dirty!
