Welcome from the Department Head

Welcome to the Department of Anthropology at Texas A&M University!!  This year marks the 45th year that Anthropology courses have been taught at Texas A&M.

The department currently has 26 full-time faculty who offer approximately 120 different courses at the undergraduate and graduate level.  Faculty are affiliated with four different subfields or “programs”: archaeology, biological anthropology, cultural anthropology, and nautical archaeology.

The department offers degrees at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral level. The department also offers a minor in Anthropology, and an interdisciplinary minor in Museum Studies.
