Areas of Study


Some of the most pressing issues of our time stem from the complex relationship between people and the environment. If you’re interested in addressing these issues, and also following how humans have shaped their habitat and progressed as a society, then you may want to study anthropology.

UTSA’s Anthropology Program

As both a social and biological science, pursuing the B.A. in Anthropology will have you embracing a wide view of humanity, spread across four core areas. These areas include 1) culture, the study of people as a social unit, 2) linguistics, the study of language use in social life, 3) archaeology, the study of social and cultural life through human remains, and 4) biological, the study of living human populations and the behavior and ecology in non-human primates. If you choose a career path in this field, you’ll join the ranks of other anthropologists working across the world to uncover the hidden secrets of humanity’s past.

Career Resources

UTSA’s University Career Center offers several resources to help students identify and develop the global skills necessary to successfully pursue and achieve lifelong career goals.
