B.A. in Anthropology

Study the history of human experience with the B.A. in Anthropology program.

The Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology provides a comprehensive education that focuses on the principal methods used in anthropology today.

You can pursue three of the major subfields at Adelphi—cultural anthropology, archaeology and physical/forensic anthropology—as well as take advantage of the abundant research opportunities and fieldwork under the direction of our renowned faculty.  

The B.A. in Anthropology also offers a concentration in environmental anthropology that integrates anthropology with many of the key perspectives from environmental studies. 

These courses demonstrate the critical relationship that exists between human settlement patterns and their environmental setting.  Applications are drawn from the prehistoric past up through the contemporary world.
