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.
