Cultural Anthropology (Bachelor of Arts)

Program Availability

Are you fascinated by differences and similarities in cultures? In Creighton’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) program in cultural anthropology, you’ll learn about cultural diversity in social structures, language, archeology, art, technology, religion, health, gender, political structure, economics and environments. A bachelor’s in cultural anthropology will prepare you to identify how people in different cultures interact and analyze the problems that arise when cultures differ. This understanding will help you solve differences and bring people together to address inequalities.

Anthropology Minor

A minor in anthropology will introduce you to the traditional 4-field approach to the study of culture. While the introduction course covers all 4 fields with a focus on cultural anthropology, students can focus their study on religion, specific cultures or a particular region of the world (i.e. Africa, Asia, Latin America, or Native America).
