For the BA and BS degrees, the curriculum covers the four traditional subfields of anthropology: archaeology, cultural anthropology, biological (physical) anthropology, and linguistics. Undergraduates are required to produce a senior project focusing in one of the four fields. Students in the MA program may choose a thesis or non-thesis option. Faculty research has focused in North America, the southeastern US and Oklahoma, the Pacific, Jordan, Israel, Cyprus, Saint Croix, and China.
Internships may be arranged at the Gilcrease Museum or other civic organizations.
The George H. Odell Foundation offers tuition assistance to undergraduate majors and also supports graduate student research.
We offer state-of-the-art labs which facilitate a range of experimental archaeological analyses. A Sensofar S-Neox confocal and interferometry microscope, an Olympus BX53 reflected/transmitted light microscope, SteroZoom S8APO, Zeiss Stemi 2000C microscope connected to a digital camera, and a Dell T7600 Workstation for GIS and 3D rendering and modeling are available. In addition, a NextEngine 3D laser scanner with 0.005” accuracy allows for geometric morphometric analysis of archaeological specimens.
