The Department of Anthropology at The University of Alabama offers training in all four traditional sub-fields of anthropology:
- Biological Anthropology
- Linguistic Anthropology
- Social/Cultural Anthropology
We offer undergraduate minors in anthropology and evolutionary studies, and BA, MA, and PhD degrees in anthropology. At the doctoral level the department offers two tracks: archaeology of complex societies of the Americas and biocultural medical anthropology.
