Apply Your Classroom Knowledge to the Real World

U of L's Anthropology degree program challenges you to take what you learn beyond the classroom walls. As an Anthropology major, you will have the opportunity to conduct original research, engage in study abroad, and take part in other unique experiences. Cultural experiences such as those gained through study abroad are important in helping you understand other cultures as well as your own. Anthropology emphasizes the value of cross-cultural comparison. Through these opportunities, you will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to become caring and committed leaders in a globally interconnected society.

Dr. Beyin began an archaeological investigation of the Tanzanian coast to search for Stone Age sites. His research focuses on the origins of modern humans and the importance of coastal areas for dietary resources and pathways for population movement. He is pictured here with UofL students, Forest Kelly and Kurt Brown, learning how to identify artifacts and the basics of archaeological survey.
