Interdisciplinary Programs

If you’re interested in certain aspects of anthropology, but want to combine your study with another undergraduate subject area, then look into the six Interdisciplinary Programs that incorporate anthropology:

Study Asian cultures in a multidisciplinary format; understand the social, cultural, and political forces that are shaping these cultures.

Study issues concerning children and childhood experiences; infancy through adolescence, along with parenting, gender, and the place of children in society and culture.

Study and develop fundamental skills in critical and global thinking and in comparative analysis, as well as an understanding of the interactions of race, class, gender, and sexuality in the experiences of a range of social groups.

Study macro and micro evolutionary processes, the history and philosophy of evolutionary thought; emphasize evolutionary theory, ecology and genetics, study of organisms, and the dynamics of evolutionary principles in scientific inquiry.

Study in the program provides students with the ability to read beyond the headlines, to see world events in terms of how they got to be that way, how they fit into broader issues and systems, and how one might imagine their place in shaping the future.

Study a variety of issues of specific interest to women and of general interest to scholars of gender studies across a variety of diverse cultural and historical settings. This study prepares students to think critically and creatively by employing gender as a primary category of analysis.
