New Anthropology concentration available Fall 2010.  New program requirements.


Anthropology is a broad and dynamic field that studies humanity from a holistic perspective.  Our students, upon graduation, have pursued careers in environmental science, public education in museums, archaeology, public health, teaching abroad, academia, and many other fields.  Since anthropology is such a broad field, we help students to tailor their education to fit with their career goals.  And, as you can see from our past students, anthropology has great potential for a variety of career choices! 


 Anthropology Students PENN

Anthropology students present research at PENN in Philadelphia .

The faculty in Anthropology at ISU specialize in human behavior, people and cultures from the past, and the forensic study of human remains.  Students pursue course work in many contexts including some with hands on experience by participating in archaeological excavation, the analysis of artifacts, or the study of human remains in a laboratory setting.  The anthropology faculty teach a broad range of topics but will also mentor students in special topics courses in which students pursue the studies of their choosing.  Take a look at the anthropology faculty web pages to learn more about each of us and the potential opportunities we have to offer.  We look forward to hearing from you!
