Temple University's Department of Anthropology offers programs of study at both undergraduate and graduate levels.


The undergraduate program is intended to give students a strong foundation in all four subdisciplines of anthropology: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and sociocultural anthropology. At the same time, there is sufficient flexibility in the requirements for the anthropology major to allow students to focus their coursework, if they desire, on one of the four subdisciplines in particular, as well as in the anthropology of visual communication. A minor in anthropology is also offered.

The graduate program likewise comprises the four anthropological subdisciplines of archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology, and sociocultural anthropology, offering courses, laboratory facilities, and faculty mentors in each as well as in the anthropology of visual communication. All admitted students are admitted into the Ph.D. program. Beyond the first one to two years of course work, individual programs of study are tailored to students' specific interests and may include advanced seminars, independent studies, relevant courses in other departments and colleges, internships, and independent and collaborative research projects (both field-based and laboratory-based).
