Welcome to Anthropology at UC Santa Barbara

Anthropology is the study of humankind in the broadest sense: biological, sociocultural, and historical. The Department of Anthropology at UCSB has been a vibrant and active center of research and teaching for over a half century. We offer B.A. degrees in three emphases: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and Cultural Anthropology as well as a B.A. in Anthropology without an emphasis. Our faculty specialize in three wings of anthropology, with research and graduate specializations in archaeology (including bioarchaeology), sociocultural anthropology, and integrative anthropological sciences (evolutionary anthropology, biological and cultural).
