About Anthropology

According to the American Anthropological Association, anthropology is “the study of humans, past and present. To understand the full sweep and complexity of cultures across all of human history, anthropology draws and builds upon knowledge from the social and biological sciences as well as the humanities and physical sciences. A central concern of anthropologists is the application of knowledge to the solution of human problems. Historically, anthropologists in the United States have been trained in one of four areas: sociocultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics.” To that end, the following degree program provides coursework in the four subdisciplines, as well as courses within a variety of social, biological, and physical sciences, and

the humanities.

This degree prepares students to pursue seamlessly a baccalaureate degree in Anthropology at a CSU.
