The Ohio State University's Department of Anthropology is as diverse as the career opportunities available to graduates of the program. Our faculty members are among the very best anthropologists in the nation, and we pride ourselves on the numerous learning and research resources and experiences available to our undergraduate and graduate students. We are especially proud of our talented and productive graduate students as they prepare to be leaders in the upcoming generation of anthropologists. Placement of our undergraduate students from our two undergraduate majors—Anthropology and Anthropological Sciences—in productive careers and graduate and professional programs is among the top in the United States. Many of our majors are in pre-health programs for medicine, dentistry, nursing, nutrition, other health sciences, and veterinary medicine. Our emphasis on writing and communication prepare our majors for a diversity of careers nationally and globally. Ohio State Anthropology is ranked 3rd in the nation for programs that offer a B.A. and/or B.S. degree. The Ph.D. program is ranked 5th in the nation. Our department offers classes and programs in many areas of anthropology, including the three major subdisciplines—archaeology, cultural anthropology, and biological (physical) anthropology. You can learn more about the courses offered in the Anthropology by visiting the undergraduate and graduate students pages on this web site.
