Major in Anthropology

Choices for students interested in majoring in anthropology.

Students who want to major in anthropology at the University of Louisville can choose either a concentration in the natural sciences or a concentration in the social sciences.  Students interested in biological or physical anthropology would benefit from the natural sciences concentration while those interested in cultural or social anthropology would benefit from the concentration in the social sciences.  Biological or physical anthropology is concerned with the study of human populations from an evolutionary standpoint.  Cultural or social anthropology is concerned with the differing cultures of human populations.  In either case, both concentrations result in a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology.
