Majors & Minors

Major in Anthropology - A.B.

Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. The Major in Anthropology provides students with critical, creative, and globally-based thinking skills. At UGA, our focus on ecological and environmental anthropology crosscuts three main sub-fields: archaeology, biological anthropology, and cultural anthropology. Each of these teach a set of distinctive abilities and, when combined, prepare students for a wide array of future careers in 21st century business, research, industry, and public service.
