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 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. We offer graduate specializations in archaeology (including bioarchaeology), sociocultural anthropology, and integrative anthropological sciences.
