Anthropology (literally the study of humans) is a broad and diverse field concerned with all aspects of the human condition – past, present and future. An undergraduate majoring in anthropology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, learns of this breadth and diversity by taking courses in cultural, biological, and archaeological anthropology. The major is designed so that all students are trained in these primary subfields, but the curriculum also allows the student to concentrate in those aspects of anthropology that she/he finds most interesting. The undergraduate who earns a Bachelor of Arts with a major in anthropology from UT Knoxville is prepared to enter careers in a variety of fields such as health, education, government, law, social work, and human services. If the student is interested in a career as a professional anthropologist, graduate training is a necessity. The excellence of the faculty and the relevance of available courses in the department afford future anthropologists the undergraduate background necessary to pursue advanced degrees.
