Admission & Financial Aid

Be a leading voice in public, collaborative and community-engaged anthropology

Studying anthropology at DU means joining scholars who advance our understanding of humanity itself — in all of its complexity across time and space. We offer an anthropology major or minor for undergraduates, as well as a master's program with concentrations in archaeology, cultural anthropology or museum and heritage studies. Our small class sizes and emphasis on mentorship provide in-depth knowledge of anthropological studies, while our museum emphasis on fieldwork and network of community partners prepare you for a range of careers. 


Undergraduate Degree Programs

Undergraduates can major or minor in anthropology, a program that draws on the arts, humanities, and social and natural sciences to study human experience. We specialize in cultural and biological anthropology, as well as archaeology and museum studies.

Graduate Degree Programs

Our master's program offers degree tracks in cultural anthropology, archaeology, or museum and heritage studies. We emphasize the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class and other variables in human experience, exploring how these shape social change and development.

Graduate Admission

With the assistance of amazing mentors I was able to discover a field that combines my passions and it is a field I hope to pursue for many years to come through such opportunities as research, field schools, and graduate school.
