We provide you and the wider community with holistic, comparative knowledge about human biological and cultural diversity as derived from anthropological research. The Anthropology curriculum adopts the “four-field" pedagogical approach to introduce you to Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Linguistic Anthropology, and Archaeology, as well as elective courses to help you refine your educational goals. As such, the AA-T degree in Anthropology offers a strong behavioral sciences foundation in theory and method, is applicable to many undergraduate programs, and prepares you for a broad range of public and private sector employment.
A central goal of the Anthropology Program is the application of knowledge to solve human problems on both local and global scales of influence. To this end, you are expected to leave the program with an intellectual toolkit for exploring the environmental, biological, and cultural dimensions of human change using a solutions-oriented mindset. Anthropology faculty are committed to creating safe academic and professional environments that are engaging, challenging, inclusive spaces that inspire respectful dialogue and welcome diverse ideas in pursuit of these goals.
