Who are we and where did we come from? Before you start citing what you learned from “The Birds and the Bees,” grab an anthropology textbook. What you’ll find will be much more informative – and far less awkward – than the lecture your parents once gave you.
As an anthropology major, you will study the origins of humankind, how our humble beginnings shaped us into the people we are today and what the future could possibly bring based on the past.

But we know: anthropology scholarships!
