UNCG offers a flexible, three field undergraduate Anthropology degree that allows specialization in cultural, biological, or archaeological anthropology. We emphasize the study of method and theory in Anthropology, and provide many opportunities for mentored-research experiences in the field and the lab, study abroad, and service learning. Our faculty are active researchers in prehistoric and historic archaeology in the Old and the New World, paleoanthropology and paleontology, and medical and applied cultural anthropology, and they fully incorporate undergraduates in their research. We offer a unique interdepartmental Archaeology major with colleagues from Geography, History and Classical Studies. Department faculty maintain well-equipped labs in Andean archaeology, zooarchaeology, historic archaeology of the Southeastern US, paleoanthropology and paleontology, 3D virtual imaging, and remote sensing.
Internships are available at a number of local and regional organizations including museums, zoos, and community service providers.
