Anthropology is about culture, people, and discovery.
There are many exciting paths a St. Mary’s anthropology student can take. From underwater archaeology to cultures of Africa, you’ll get to experience the world, inside and out of the classroom.
Course offerings address topical areas that include:
- Chesapeake archaeology
- Ecological and economic anthropology
- Atlantic World archaeology
- Kinship and social organization
- Applied anthropology
The major is structured around our department’s focus on the Atlantic World and consists of an emphasis on student participation in faculty research, and their own research through their St. Mary’s Projects.
A degree in anthropology prepares students for graduate work in the social sciences and professions, and provides an excellent liberal arts foundation for a wide range of career options— working in educational institutions, museums, business, private industry, or government.
