Our undergraduate major is designed to provide students with a foundation in the three anthropological sub-disciplines at UO: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and Cultural Anthropology.
The anthropology major is useful not only for those planning to go on to practice anthropology professionally, but also for careers in secondary education, international studies, social work, and other sciences or humanities.
Students typically select one area of concentration and complete the department requirements for that area; however, some students complete the requirements for multiple areas of concentration within the major.
We also offer a minor degree in Anthropology. In order to declare the anthropology major or minor, students must complete the appropriate declaration form.
