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).
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.
For further information, contact Dr. William Pietraface (Biology).
The Department of Anthropology offers a Minor in Anthropology. Completion of the minor requires two of three introductory courses (cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology) and 12 additional semester hours in anthropology.
Research grants are available from funds from the College at Oneonta Foundation to support collaborative faculty-student research.
