Program Type: Undergraduate Option 
Associated Major: Anthropology - BA, BS, CRED, HBA, HBS

Description: Updated 

The Biocultural option focuses on the ways evolutionary biology, political-economy, ecology, and culture interact to influence human health and behavior, over time and in cross-cultural perspective. This option prepares students to engage in ethical fieldwork, laboratory work, and data analyses, to ultimately understand the intersections of biomarkers and other indicators of human health status, demographic processes, social relationships, cultural norms, and political and economic inequalities.
