In the Department of Anthropology, you will study the full range of the human experience, from human origins and early cultures to traditional and modern societies. While anthropology studies human behavior and cultural patterns around the world, it is also concerned with preserving cultural diversity and improving the lives of peoples who live in today’s changing world.
When you major in Anthropology, your core classes will introduce you to archaeology, biological anthropology and cultural anthropology.
Beyond coursework, we offer unique student experiences in the real world. Our students have conducted fieldwork in the Great Plains, Europe and Africa. They have interned with local museums, the Indian Center, the National Park Service Midwest Archeological Center, the Nebraska State Historical Society, and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency.
