Bachelor of Arts, Sociology/Anthropology: Anthropology Track

As long as people have lived, anthropologists have studied human beings, their characteristics, ancestry, physiology, and evolution. The Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Anthropology, with an anthropology track, allows you to concentrate in anthropology, so you can fully discover cultures and societies and their stories.

The anthropology track emphasizes cultural practices in particular places, such as the influence of language, how people organize, govern, and create meaning.
