We offer a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Evolutionary Anthropology, as well as a minor. Students can also pursue any of Duke's other minors and certificates, and double major in another field with careful course planning. We also encourage students interested in teaching to pursue a minor in education and earn a Comprehensive Science Teacher Certification.
|The Bachelor of Science degree is intended to prepare you for careers in the sciences, including advanced degrees in anthropology, medicine, dentistry, physical therapy and veterinary medicine. Students who earn a B.S. are also well placed to work in science-related research and education positions at museums, government offices, NGOs and private industry. Students seeking a B.S. degree will acquire a strong knowledge of the basic sciences (math, chemistry, physics, and biology) in addition to core knowledge in evolutionary anthropology in preparation for a career in the sciences.|
|The Bachelor of Arts degree is intended as a broader liberal arts exposure to evolutionary anthropology. The requirements are similar in depth to the B.S., but fewer courses in the basic sciences are required. Students seeking a B.A. degree in evolutionary anthropology will gain strong core knowledge in the discipline as a whole in preparation for a variety of possible careers within or outside the sciences.|
|The minor is intended as a pathway for students to build educational depth in evolutionary anthropology as a broad field or in subdiscipline as a way to augment another major.|
|The teacher certification program offered through Duke's Program in Education provides students with a science background, teaching experience, and an understanding of pedagogy and methods appropriate for teaching at the high school level.|
