Dig deep into the human experience
As an anthropologist, you will help open windows to hundreds of generations of human life on planet Earth through interconnected lenses of archeology, biology, culture and linguistics.
Big questions will challenge you. What makes humans human? What factors informed evolution? Why and how do civilizations prosper or fail? At Susquehanna University, your curiosity will be fueled by a hands-on, in-depth anthropology education that evokes a greater sense of inquiry and awakens an enhanced spirit of adventure.
You will learn from expert faculty who are active researchers often sharing their work with you. Those faculty scholars will support your projects, as you hone your knowledge and competencies to conduct thorough research, communicate in a scientific discipline, problem solve, think critically and work with a team. You will acquire transferable skills, including the ability to conduct surveys, samples and narrative interviews, interpret data, assess organizational structures and excel at cross-cultural communications. Besides lessons coming to life through engaging research activities, you will benefit from small class sizes as your professor supports your interests, activities and success.
Studying anthropology offers a wide range of career paths, from government to business to higher education without geographic boundaries. And the really awesome news is that you have the opportunity go into the field before you even don your mortar board and robe. At Susquehanna, you can study abroad in several countries through our Global Opportunities (GO) program.
