SUMMARY

Majoring in Anthropology is a valuable choice and commonly a critical first step for undergraduates wanting to pursue a career as an excavator consultant, an ethnomusicology, or an anthropologist. Interestingly, nationally, anthropology is fairly common ranking as the 56th most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 9,040 anthropology diplomas received. In-state tuition for anthropology at private institutions is, on average, 4.9 times more costly than their public counterparts.

There are 461 institutions that offer anthropology. This number of colleges is on par with other majors offered in the United States. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other anthropology undergrads, consider institutions in California which have the most students admitted to anthropology annually. More generally, the best region to study anthropology is in the Far West region with University of California-Los Angeles, University of California-Riverside, and University of California-Santa Barbara best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the best conference to study anthropology is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Colorado Boulder representing the conference. That being said, our selection for the best university for anthropology is Stanford University. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The best school does not mean it is the best school for every student. There might be a bunch of factors to weigh when choosing ​university. External stuff such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might alter one's decision on which university to attend. Here at authority.org, we weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which anthropology school has the top campus, the answer is Harvard University. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which university has the finest campus, we have an entire page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare every major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the universities with the best student life and, from that list, our pick of the university with the best student life for anthropology is University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to find out more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our conclusions just might surprise you.

If price is a major factor in your decision on where to go to university, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be our most expensive school for anthropology, at least regarding out of state enrollment. We do have a list of the most expensive universities that might put the cost at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. You could also care to know that anthropology is the 34th most expensive major in the nation, with an average bill of $51,100. To zoom out a little, the most expensive state for anthropology nationally is District of Columbia with expenses at the primary three colleges American University of $49,070, George Washington University of $54,453, and costs at Georgetown University of $54,453. To zoom out even further, the most expensive region of the country for anthropology is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Amherst College with a cost of $57,640, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for anthropology is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, Weber State University with a cost of $14,973, and University of Wyoming with a cost of $13,392. In better news, the most affordable school for anthropology is Binghamton University. Authority.org's entire list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay about $10,300 for a degree in anthropology. That price inflates dramatically to an average of $24,900 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. On that note, our pick for the university representing the best value for anthropology: Stanford University. Through this link you can find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value in general. Bear in mind, this discussion is based on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for anthropology majors differ a lot, but within two-years of completing the major students will regularly make in the neighborhood of $42,900. While there is a lot of variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can bring in up to $81,700. Right out of school, the lowest end positions within the anthropology space make $22,900, which could be worse. The highest earning graduates from anthropology have come from Stanford University and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The general diversity of anthropology ranks near the top, ranking in the 78th percentile of majors nationally. The university with the most composite diversity for anthropology is New York University and here you can find our general list for the schools with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Anthropology is only in the 44th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 73rd percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest proportion at 54% of scholars studying anthropology. Additionally, 72% of undergraduates seeking an anthropology major are women.

The median score of anthropology professors is 4 stars, a score that is surprisingly the median for all majors; which is a fine. If you are curious about the most popular anthropology professor in the nation, look no further than Britton Shepardson at Northern Arizona University. This may be a shock, but the highest rated professors for anthropology according to students are found at Temple University. As we incorporate data other than simply rankings we find that the school possessing the overall best professors for anthropology is Stanford University. You will find more detail on our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, as well as some of the finest professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for anthropology is Stanford University. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a comprehensive page for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you believe that considering higher education from context only formed from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental issues. We encourage you to read our more nuanced pages on different colleges and explore a couple of our background articles on beneficial things to consider as you continue your college search.
