Bioarchaeology Concentration

This 12-credit concentration offers undergraduate students training in the field of bioarchaeology, the excavation and analysis of human skeletal remains from archaeological sites, from a broad perspective.  

The Department of Anthropology currently houses a large skeletal collection in our Bioarchaeology Laboratory, in which faculty and students conduct research that dovetails with signature research strengths in the department related to health, social identity, and politics. Human skeletal remains offer an important source of information for the study of biological and cultural human variation.
