* In this Multiple Options Program, three (3) degree Options have been created based on the wants and needs of students, the interests and expertise of faculty, and the versatility of the discipline curriculum.  More Interdisciplinary Options can be created.  Among the social sciences, Anthropology is probably the most versatile for interdisciplinary studies.  Because Anthropology is divided into physical and social aspects, it cuts across both the sciences and the humanities.  Scientific methods apply to Anthropology, and the arts of today are the artifacts of the future.  These are just samples.
