About Anthropology, BA, BA (Hons), Masters Degree - at University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC)

Anthropology is the integrated biological and socio-cultural investigation of humankind from the time of our pre-human ancestors to the present, including the study of both small and large-scale societies. This program includes courses in archaeological, biological, linguistic and socio-cultural anthropology.

The UNBC program includes courses in archaeological, biological, linguistic and sociocultural anthropology. While a small number of mandatory courses will ensure that all students in the program share basic understanding of the range of anthropological approaches, students are able to select courses within the program and from other parts of the curriculum to focus on specific interests.

The following suggestions illustrate the range of possibilities: a student with an interest in language could select courses within the programs in First Nations Studies, International Studies, English and Psychology; a student intending to enter a graduate program in archaeology might select courses from First Nations Studies, Geology, Geography, History and Environmental Studies programs; a student planning to work in the subfield of sociocultural anthropology could select courses from First Nations Studies, International Studies, Northern Studies, Women's Studies and Social Work; a student interested in biological (or medical) anthropology would include courses in Biology, Environmental Studies and Statistics; and a career in museology or cultural property management might benefit from a background in Resource Recreation and Tourism or administration as well as First Nations Studies, International Studies, History and Northern Studies.

Anthropology prepares students for entrance to a number of graduate programs (Archaeology, Biological and Sociocultural Anthropology, Museology); several types of professional programs (Law, Library and Information Science, Communicative Disorders, Social Work, Education, etc.); or employment in government or the private sector. 

The Anthropology Program offers a major and minor in Anthropology, a BA Honours in Anthropology, as well as a Joint Major in Anthropology/Geography. The joint major offers minors in GIS, Physical Geography, Human Geography, and Geomorphology. Anthropology also offers a BA Honours-Anthropology.

Graduate students can earn their Master IDIS at UNBC as well.
