Anthropological Sciences students are encouraged to take courses in allied disciplines depending upon their academic and career interests, such as Geospatial Science, Geology, Chemistry, Biology, History, Physics, Sociology, and Criminal Justice. We maintain a close relationship with the Radford University Forensic Science Institute and its affiliated programs.

The faculty of Anthropological Sciences place a high priority on providing students with direct, hands-on experience in the field and lab, including involvement in on-going faculty research projects. These include archaeological investigations in historic and prehistoric Virginia, and forensic investigations throughout the region. Internationally, the faculty also have active archaeological, bioarchaeological, and forensic investigations in Bolivia and the Solomon Islands.
