Undergraduate Program

To understand the full sweep and complexity of our species throughout human history and across societies, anthropology draws upon and integrates methods and theories across disciplines. The Anthropology program encourages the development of skills needed for today’s workforce including critical thinking, research methods, quantitative analysis and interpretation, writing, and cross-cultural communication. Anthropology graduates from Boise State have successfully pursued careers in law, education, public health, business, cultural and natural resource management, social work, community development, planning, as well as professional anthropology. With a focus in archaeological coursework and field school, anthropology graduates have been successful in finding positions with state and federal government organizations and private consulting firms.
