Anthropology (B.A.)

Anthropology, in common with other sciences, is concerned with the formulation and testing of hypotheses or tentative explanations of observed human phenomena. Anthropology also has an important humanistic tradition.


Our Program

Anthropology (B.A.)

Here at Lockhaven, you'll find anthropology divided into three study areas:

  • cultural anthropology, which studies ways of life in societies across the world;
  • physical anthropology, which traces human origins and biological variability
  • prehistoric archaeology, which seeks to explain human behavior by studying material remains from past cultures

You'll take courses in cultural anthropology, prehistoric archaeology, human origins, history of anthropology, research and writing skills and choose from classes in field archaeology, field methods, independent study or an internship. We emphasize a strong foundation in the major subfields of anthropology; cultural anthropology, biological (physical) anthropology, and archaeology. Our program is structured to both introduce you to the anthropology field, as well as allow you to focus on their specific interest within anthropology. Thus we have developed a set of core courses and electives reflected in three tracks of studies:

  • General - students not yet specialized
  • Applied - personal training and application for careers in all three sub fields
  • Research - appropriate for students who plan to pursue graduate school
