Anthropology Department

Welcome to the Anthropology Department at California State University, Long Beach!

We offer a BA in Anthropology with a four-fields focus.

Every student is introduced to Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Physical Anthropology both at the lower division and upper division levels. Students take 18 electives to complete their BA degree. They can take a variety of electives of interest to them, or they can focus their electives on more narrow areas of interest depending on the availability of courses offered by the department. See “Undergraduate Programs” for more information.

We offer two MAs: 1) An Option in Applied Anthropology, 2) a general MA in Anthropology.

All MA students take a set of core courses. Students in our Applied Option follow a prescribed program, focusing their work on applied interests. General MA students take electives based on availability of courses offered by the department. See “Graduate Programs” for more information. Graduate Application Deadline is March 1st
