What rituals do people in other cultures practice? What does the fossil record tell us about how humans evolved? Why were ancient temples and pyramids built by past peoples? These are the kinds of topics that anthropologists explore—what it means to be human. Anthropology covers a lot of topics from culture, language, evolution and archaeology, so if you like a broad perspective on humans around the world, then this is the major for you!

Anthropology integrates a wide array of subjects into understanding humanity, like biology, anatomy, geology, psychology, geography and history. Students acquire a multi-cultural perspective that gives them the skills to work with people from many backgrounds, while also building a scientific approach to problem-solving. This transfer degree will set students on a path for future careers in business, international relations, medicine and health, service industries, human resources, cultural resource management, and biological sciences.
