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 two emphases: Cultural Anthropology (including archaeology), and Biological Anthropology. We offer graduate specializations in archaeology (including bioarchaeology), sociocultural anthropology, and integrative anthropological sciences.
