Information for Current Students

Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology

The major in Anthropology includes both interdisciplinary and applied elements designed to better prepare our graduates for post-graduation careers and advanced graduate education opportunities.

The major allows students to develop and complete an interdisciplinary theme of study that goes far beyond a traditional, strictly discipline-based major. Today, with increasing demand for cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills in both old and newly evolving professions, multi-discipline-based degrees are in growing demand. UNC’s anthropology faculty is actively involved in advising and assisting students in the design and implementation of individualized degree programs involving anthropology and its related areas of study within the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
