Anthropology Club

There is an undergraduate student Anthropology Club, with some funding from the Student Association. Students run the club and all events, with the assistance of a faculty advisor. Past events have included field trips, guest speakers, and travel to national meetings (including presentations by the students).

Human Biology Concentration

The Human Biology concentration within the biology major is a joint program offered by the Departments of Anthropology and Biology at SUCO. Core and elective requirements come from both departments. This program is particularly useful for students interested in careers in medicine, public health, and epidemiology.
