The Anthropology program at Minnesota State University Mankato is designed to provide an advanced education with an opportunity to develop skills within the field. Applied Anthropology utilizes anthropological methods and theories to solve practical problems. 


The Anthropology program at Minnesota State University Mankato is centered on a dedication to a four-field approach that provides a strong foundation for our students while they pursue specialization within one of the four fields. Graduates of our Master’s program find work in the public and private sectors or go on to further their education in PhD programs across the country.

Anthropology is the study of the origins and diversity of human biology and culture. Anthropologists study the evolution and adaptations of the human species through the four major subdivisions of the discipline: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistics, and cultural anthropology.


What can you do with an Anthropology major? Plenty! Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Anthropology can lead to a surprisingly wide array of rewarding public and private-sector careers in which people with expertise in human behavior are valued.
