    Course Summary

    Anthropologists study humanity (and to a lesser extent, the other primates) on many different levels and through many different perspectives. Some specialise in the biological aspects of humanity and its ancestor species. Others focus on prehistory, either generally or regionally. Some focus on studying the cultures of existing human groups and ethnicities, and others specialise in non-human primates. They all seek to better understand what it means to be ‘human’, and to apply that knowledge in ways that improve lives.

    OSU’s BA in Anthropology will see you focusing on one of three main subfields in the discipline: Cultural Anthropology, Physical Anthropology or Archaeology. You will take core courses exploring each of them. 

    OSU’s BA programs are known for their strong academic focus, their close ties to the university’s world changing research and their focus on making students ready to further their educational achievements or move directly into a well-paid, exciting career upon graduation.
