FAST FACTS ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Anthropology has been taught at Appalachian State University since 1970. First part of a combined Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Department of Anthropology was established in 1978. We have nearly 200 majors and offer B.A. and B.S. degrees in several concentrations including sociocultural anthropology, archaeology, biological anthropology, and social practice and sustainability. In 1993 a special program, the ASU Laboratories of Archaeological Science, was begun.
