Faculty: Dr. Mary L. Russell (FS); Dr. Kathryn Keith (PY)

Anthropology, the study of human beings, combines four subfields to offer a broad-based education for college transfer or personal enrichment:

Sociocultural Anthropology: the description and analysis of living cultures
Archaeology: the description and analysis of past cultures
Anthropological Linguistics: dealing with the totality of world languages
Biological Anthropology: examining human beings as biological organisms

Students planning to transfer as anthropology majors should complete the AA-DTA degree requirements and must check with the transfer institution regarding specific requirements and transferable credits. Anthropology majors should work closely with a faculty advisor to plan an overall program of study.
