The Department of Anthropology at Colorado State University
The Anthropology Department offers an anthropology major, three optional concentrations, and a minor as well as a major and minor in geography.
BA in Anthropology
In the undergraduate anthropology program, students learn about human cultural and biological variation, in the past and present. We are focused on understanding the structure of the social, environmental, political, and economic systems in which humans operate. Students participate in interdisciplinary research on human-environment interactions, globalization and development, and health and well-being.
BS in Geography
In the undergraduate geography program, students learn about human-environment interactions with a focus on global change in mountain systems. Students learn how to "think like a geographer" in that connections between people and the environment are addressed from a spatial perspective and approached with geospatial technologies (GIS and Remote Sensing) in order to solve real-world problems.
Our department offers a CSU Online Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology. Students learn about human cultural and biological variation, in the past and present. We focus on human-environment interactions, globalization and development, and health and well-being. Students gain a robust toolkit that can be applied in any industry.
