B.A. in Anthropology

Due to the holistic nature of the discipline, an undergraduate degree in anthropology provides excellent preparation for advanced academic degrees, such as those obtained in medical school, law school, and graduate school in anthropology and other social sciences. USF Anthropology majors have been accepted at major graduate schools in the United States, including the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago. For the B.A. Program, our primary goals are to teach students to think anthropologically and to promote a sense of wonder about human potential. Thinking anthropologically fosters critical understanding of cultural assumptions, social conventions, information, and even the concept of culture itself. This level of critical thinking builds the skills and attitudes necessary for working and living in diverse social environments. We currently have about 250 majors, and each year thousands of undergraduate students enroll in our major and general education courses.
