WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF ANTHROPOLOGY

Anthropology involves the study of human biological and cultural diversity, across time and space. In addition to conducting academic research, anthropologists apply their knowledge and skills to solve real-world problems in a variety of fields, including forensics, cultural resource management, economic development, public health, museum studies, and environmental conservation.

The Department of Anthropology at Texas A&M has 26 full-time faculty members situated in four distinct programs: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, and Nautical Archaeology. The department offers a B.A. degree and Minor at the undergraduate level, and MA and Ph.D. degrees at the graduate level. Currently, the department has approximately 200 undergraduate majors and 100 graduate students.
