Anthropology - BA

Anthropology is the study of human origins, development, activities and experiences throughout time and around the world. At Temple, students take courses in all four subfields of anthropology (archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and sociocultural anthropology) in order to develop an understanding of human origins, development, activities and experiences throughout time and around the world. With its focus on understanding human diversity, and a commitment to developing critical analysis, problem solving, communication and technological literacy skills, the general anthropology major prepares students for work in local, state and federal-level government agencies, in international development, in social services, in medicine and health-related fields, in education (primary, secondary and higher), in city planning, in cultural resources management, in environmental policy, and in the media.
