Anthropology, AA

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree and Certificate List

Students majoring in Anthropology will focus on the nature and implications of human behavior and interactions through the integration of the four major sub-disciplines of Anthropology. Knowledge and use of the scientific method will allow students to explain evolutionary theory in light of the human fossil record, analyze the relationship between modern humans and non-human primates and objectively evaluate non-Western customs and beliefs. The major is ideal for those who intend a career obliging a high degree of such interaction, particularly of a bi-cultural or multicultural form. Students considering careers in social work, international affairs, teaching, politics, public health, and journalism will find the Anthropology major appropriate. Students intending to specialize in anthropology on the professional level almost always attend graduate school, since employment in the field usually requires an advanced degree.
