Geography and Anthropology

About the Department

Welcome to the Department of Geography & Anthropology at Cal Poly Pomona.  We currently offer Bachelor of Science degrees in two disciplines: Anthropology and Geography.

The Anthropology Program aims at the scientific study of the peoples of the world, past and present, in the broadest possible sense: their total biological and cultural heritage.  The program includes two options: General and Cultural Resource Management.

The Geography Program is designed to provide an understanding of humanity's cultural and physical environments by examining the dynamic systems (both natural and human) through which these diverse settings are changed or sustained.  The program includes three tracks: General, Environmental Geography and Geographic Information Systems.
