Anthropology (Physical), Biology, and Chemistry is an interdisciplinary major leading to the B.S. degree. The program serves several purposes: (1) to prepare students for specialization at the graduate level in one of several fields: human origins, human genetics, human growth, human adaptation, primatology, forensic anthropology, or criminalistics; (2) to prepare students for secondary-school teaching in the life sciences, with emphasis on human origins and biological variation in human groups; and (3) to prepare premedical and predental students.
