Anthropology Major (BA) - Applied Methodologies & Heritage Studies Concentration

Applied anthropologists use anthropological methods and theories to address problems of the contemporary world. Anthropologists work in virtually every field from economics to education, from medicine to the legal system. At Hamline, our applied anthropology coursework combines methodological training in human osteology and forensic anthropology; archival research and ethnographic work with living communities; archaeological methods and research on material culture; and theory and design experiences with museums. Students in this concentration will have opportunities to engage in community-centered research in museum exhibit design, archaeological and bioanthropological field and laboratory work on heritage preservation projects, and cultural and performing arts advocacy. A concentration in applied anthropology and heritage studies prepares students for work in museums, tourism, archaeology, forensic death investigation, heritage industry, and the nonprofit sector.
