Anthropology major at Pitt-Greensburg

42-43 credits
Bachelor of Arts

Anthropology is concerned with the development and functioning of both historical and contemporary human cultures. While Anthropology majors will learn about human behavior from cultural, physical, and archaeological perspectives, they may choose to emphasize either Archaeology or cultural Anthropology in their program of studies.

Anthropology at Pitt-Greensburg fosters a deeper appreciation of different cultures and delves into the human past. In doing so, it encourages sharp critical thinking, and competent written and oral communications skills. Students who show promise in each of these areas have a chance to work closely on faculty research projects in archaeology and socio-cultural anthropology.

All students, especially those interested in graduate study, are urged to complete courses in a foreign language through the intermediate level.
