The Archaeology option prepares students for careers in archaeology or cultural resource management. The Biological Anthropology option prepares students for careers in forensic anthropology, primatology, bioarchaeology, and other aspects of the discipline. In addition to preparing students for further studies, the Sociocultural option prepares students to work in underserved communities, the non-profit sector, education, public service, and business.
