The program of study in anthropology provides opportunities to study culture, in all of its complexity and forms of expression, in societies ranging from small-scale and technologically simple to those which are complex, urban, and technologically advanced. Such study allows students to develop a perception and appreciation of the common ground shared by all peoples and cultures. Students interested in the Peace Corps or public/religious service groups will find the study of anthropology especially useful.
Career possibilities for students with an anthropology background:
- city planner
- community developer
- international affairs and business management
- health care and medicine
- preservation of cultural resources
Courses in anthropology are general elective courses, which fulfill general degree requirements of the College and requirements of specific programs.
