Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humanity in all times and places. As such, it has the broadest scope of any of the social sciences. The Anthropology portion of the department includes basic introductory courses in cultural and physical anthropology as well as archaeology. In addition, courses are offered which focus on selected areas such as religion, art, and North American Indians.

With the goal of understanding people in all parts of the world, anthropology is useful to anyone living or working in a multicultural environment, such as the business world, health sciences, or any other profession which involves working with people from diverse backgrounds. The courses within this portion of the department are designed to provide students with survival skills for the global community in which we live, a community in which all of the world’s people are interdependent. Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in anthropology should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
