About

The Anthropology program offered by California State University Chico  provides understanding and answers based on a century of exploring the development of human nature, society, and culture. It is the only social science that seeks to understand both human biological and cultural variation in the past and in the present.

Overview

What Can You Do with an Anthropology Degree?

Anthropology is an eminently practical major for those seeking a liberal education leading to a broad spectrum of career opportunities. Beyond the more traditional teaching and research trajectories, anthropology majors may select a course of study to suit them equally well for either examining the social impacts of a new federal program, or searching on a remote hillside for ancient artifacts. Anthropology majors are finding positions in business, public and private agencies, education, museums, and public health programs. The Department of Anthropology offers four applied anthropology certificate programs.

If you seek a major that will not only open up significant employment opportunities but also provides a sense of meaning and purpose in your life, consider majoring in anthropology at California State University Chico. It leads to a more sophisticated, historically and scientifically grounded understanding of the relationship of human beings to the natural world, past and present. Anthropology majors develop an awareness gained through instruction and practical experiences of how culture shapes and reshapes our understanding of human problems and possibilities. Anthropology students are perhaps most distinguished by the realization that there are many ways of engaging in the human experience, each equally valid.
