Anthropology is the study of human beings, both physically and culturally, in the past and present, mostly through the method of fieldwork.
If you plan to major in anthropology, a Bachelor of Arts degree is strongly recommended for anyone considering graduate school. The B.A. requirements include one course in statistics and two courses in a foreign language.
At NKU, we offer a learner-centered anthropology program with courses and activities designed to give students a deeper appreciation of diversity of all peoples. Our award-winning faculty specialize in all four subfields -- archaeology, cultural anthropology, linguistics, biological anthropology -- and offer insights into different cultures around the world.
Anthropology majors also have opportunities for field study in the broader world outside the classroom. Students worked with faculty members on recent research trips to Thailand and Vancouver, British Columbia. In the summer of 2013, we will offer a class in Belize.
