In a rapidly globalizing and changing world, anthropologists are the best equipped professionals to identify and meet the challenges of our shifting cultural realities. Students can obtain a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in Anthropology or a minor in anthropology. Our reknowned faculty specialize in the three major subfields of anthropology (archaeology, biological anthropology and cultural anthropology), and also offer courses in other subfields, such as applied and linguistic anthropology, as needed. The singular dedication of our faculty to serving our active and engaged undergraduate student community has won them several of the most prestigious university, state, and national teaching awards. Our faculty's excellence in teaching and research, as well as the success of our students and alumni, has brought world-wide recognition to the Anthropology Program at Kansas State University.
The Anthropology Program at K-state strives to prepare students with a wide array of skills and tools to succeed in careers that tackle the changes and challenges faced by our globalizing society today. With this goal in mind, the Anthropology Program offers unique opportunities to undergraduates, including teaching and research assistant experiences, and hands-on training in archaeology, digital ethnography, ethnography, forensic anthropology, human biology, medical anthropology, museum studies, osteology, and religious studies. Such experiences propel our students to win top scholarships, attend the best graduate programs in the world, and obtain highly desirable jobs in a wide range of anthropological fields, as well as in medicine, law, marketing, public service, museums, design, planning, education, international business, and other professions.
In addition to exciting courses, the Anthropology program offers three certificates: Global health, Medicine and Society, Religious Studies, and Museum Studies. To keep up-to date with our news, follow us on instagram: kansas _state_anthropology
