Course Content

The B.A. track in anthropology trains students in the discipline’s four traditional subfields: cultural, biological, and linguistic anthropology and archaeology, providing them with a holistic understanding of humans as biological, cultural, and linguistic beings, both in the present and the past. This track is intended for students who seek a comprehensive understanding of human cultural and physical diversity within a broad social, historical, and evolutionary framework.

The B.A. Track in Cultural Anthropology focuses on the issues, modes of inquiry, fieldwork strategies, methods of data collection and analysis, and forms of ethnographic representation that characterize contemporary cultural anthropology. The Cultural Anthropology Track is intended for students interested in current cultural, social, and political issues, especially in understanding the relationship of global processes to new cultural forms and social inequalities.

Funding

Rutgers uses your FAFSA to develop a financial-aid package based on your qualifications, financial need and the funds available to the university. Your package may include any or a combination of these major financial aid sources:

  • Gift aid does not require repayment and is divided into three categories: grants (which recognize financial need) and scholarships and awards (which recognize academic merit, special talents, or other achievements).
  • Loans must be repaid (usually after graduation) and can come from private lenders as well as federal, state and university sources.
  • Work-study allows students to earn money for college expenses while gaining valuable skills - often in their intended field.
