The B.A. in Anthropology provides a broad base of information about human culture and what makes humans unique. Culture is the totality of what humans learn and the basis for how humans define the world. Anthropologists study all kinds of individual cultures, both living and dead and simple and complex, in order to gain an understanding of culture as a human phenomenon. The very nature of anthropology is multicultural and historical. This program is hands-on, and students regularly participate in faculty-directed research projects in the Pensacola area. Senior internships and cooperative programs with private firms and government agencies also provide on-the-job training and can lead to employment. The B.A. in Anthropology is a springboard to a wide range of jobs in the private or government sectors, as well as continuing one’s academic career after graduation.
