About the Department
Anthropology is the study of past and present peoples. Among the social sciences, anthropology is distinguished by its comparative approach to peoples and cultures. As a major in a liberal arts curriculum, it provides students with basic and advanced training in all four branches of the discipline: cultural anthropology (ethnology), archaeology, biological anthropology and anthropological linguistics. Major and minor programs are designed to prepare students for postgraduate activities, which include graduate studies, research and policy-related work. Students are also prepared for careers in teaching, social work and employment in museums, government and industry, both domestic and overseas. Many use anthropology as a prelaw or premedical degree. Hunter College also offers a master of arts degree in anthropology; a doctoral degree in anthropology is offered by The City University of New York, of which Hunter is a senior college member.
