The Anthropology major seeks to provide a holistic understanding of the diversity of human behavior across time, geography and culture through a distinctly Christian worldview.
The core of the program is the five-field emphasis in anthropology. Students will not only gain a firm academic foundation but also the tools necessary to be actively involved in using their anthropological skills to service others. This program provides training for students planning to enter a variety of fields including research in the areas of private and public agencies, social welfare, community and rural development, archaeology, refugee and immigrant assistance for further academic study.
"The Anthropology program at Biola has taught me how to be a learner. I have enjoyed having my mind stretched to see that there are numerous amazing cultures around the world and that God delights in and wants to redeem each of them. As we study cultures we are able to see more of God through a different lens."
