The history of humanity

How did American culture – the iconic melting pot – come to be? What ancestral influences were drawn upon to create this unique land? These are just some of the questions tackled by anthropologists, and they’re as relevant today as ever. 

Anthropology is the study of human nature and society as well as the human past. By studying these themes at SFA, you’ll be able to successfully relate to a world in which cultural interaction and diversity have expanded dramatically. We want to prepare you for a career and for life in this diverse world by promoting understanding and compassion across cultures and eras. 

Global career reach

Anthropologists teach, research and work in various roles in corporations, government and nonprofit organizations. The degree provides fundamental understanding of world relations that is helpful on many different career paths.
