  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

The anthropology major results in a broad holistic understanding of humans and the human condition, both past and present. Students in the program study all disciplinary subfields of Anthropology: Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology, Linguistics, and Physical Anthropology.

The anthropology degree may be earned by taking face-to-face classes, mixed-mode classes, or fully online classes in any combination. Enough online classes are offered to earn the entire B.A. degree online.

Progression Requirements

Students must earn at least a grade of C (2.0) in each required course and should consult with a college advisor to ensure that adequate progress is being made toward program completion.

Program of Study (2016-17 Catalog): 42 Credit Hours

Individuals interested in pursuing an online degree in anthropology should consult the program description from the UCF catalog for a complete list of the core requirements.

Online Study

The availability of online courses offered each semester is dependent on the availability of faculty to teach them. Each course will be offered during the academic year but possibly not during every semester. Therefore, it may take the Web-based student slightly more time to complete the degree than the traditional student.

Due to restrictive state regulations, UCF is not permitted to provide online courses or instruction to students in some states. More information is available here.
