Program Information

School:McMaster University
Faculty:Faculty of Social Sciences
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Anthropology
Description:The 3-year BA program will provide students with a foundation in the field of Anthropology and its main subfields.

Anthropologists are no longer found only in far off and exotic locations; they now work in government, private industry, law enforcement, and non-profit organizations, to name just a few. The unique skills and perspectives that an Anthropology degree provides is an understanding about how we are all shaped by the cultural, social, political, and historical contexts in which we live. Employers identify critical thinking, communication, and problem solving as the most important skills they look for in university graduates. An Anthropology degree emphasizes these important skills, improves your knowledge about cultural differences, and provides a broad understanding of the experience of being human.
