A Comprehensive Skill Base
Our program will teach you to critically examine human cultural and biological diversity and evolution (please see Academics). In the process, you'll gain valuable experience conducting research, applying scientific methods to your observations, and communicating your conclusions through compelling written and oral presentations. In addition to gaining a broad understanding of human biology, nature and society, you will gain expertise in specific topics and world regions that most interest you.

A Better Learning Experience
At Humboldt State, we offer the full range of Anthropological studies (something you’d expect to find at a large university) while still providing the small class size and personal attention so often lacking at larger programs.
Our intimate classes average just 24 students, yet our faculty expertise covers every corner of the discipline from biological and archaeology, to cultural anthropology archaeology and linguistics.
The HSU Anthropology Club is designed to promote a greater understanding of the academic discipline among undergraduates and enable them to explore their interests within the field. We are a fun and friendly group that holds meetings and plans events throughout the year that are related to the various aspects of anthropology (physical, cultural, linguistics, and archaeology).
Unlimited Career Potential
A full understanding of human biology and diversity and experience working with people from different backgrounds are important assets in our increasingly diverse world. In that respect, very few disciplines can prepare you for success like Anthropology. A bachelor’s degree in Anthropology also provides you with strong research and presentation skills—both of which have consistently helped our graduates excel in a wide range of careers.
