The Anthropology major is a liberal arts degree with a broad base of information and understanding about human behavior. This unique, critical perspective provides a framework for understanding the many sub-cultural differences we meet every day. The Anthropology major can open many doors of opportunity and provide valuable training to successfully deal with the future. There are four sub-disciplines represented by the faculty and curricula of the University's Anthropology Department; Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics and Biology.
Your gift to the Anthropology Department Fund will provide much needed funding for student-faculty research, guest speakers, travel to conferences, career networking opportunities and most importantly, scholarships.
You can also choose to give in honor of your favorite professor or to one of our named funds:
- The Joan Stevenson Endowment for Anthropology Student Support--It is with heavy hearts that we share that Professor Joan Stevenson passed away in December, 2017. We are honoring her memory by establishing this endowment for student research and travel--activities that were near and dear to Dr. Stevenson’s heart because she knew how impactful these experiences are for students.
- The Herbert Taylor Anthropology Endowment--Dr. Taylor’s legacy of lively lectures and field trips is celebrated through this memorial scholarship.
- The Grabert Scholarship-This scholarship honors beloved archaeology professor Dr. Garland Grabert.
