Anthropology is the scientific study of humanity, examining human biology and culture today and in the past, and biological and cultural change through time. Students with an Anthropology major concentrate in one of the following areas: cultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology or archeology. The major in anthropology prepares students for a variety of research/academic positions (e.g. museums, colleges and universities, zoos or government agencies); and nonacademic/ research positions (e.g. businesses, archeological companies or professional writing). The objective of this program is to prepare students for transfer to a four-year university. Anthropology’s emphasis on research skills, organizational skills, critical thinking, technical writing, project management and use of holistic perspective make it an excellent undergraduate major for a variety of fields and graduate programs. Career opportunities in Anthropology include teaching, government service, research, and law.
