Overview

Associate of Arts Degree in Anthropology

Anthropology is a broad discipline because its subject matter is the entirety of human diversity. Anthropologists contribute to an understanding of the human condition through interpretations of human biological and cultural variation. 

Anthropology is often divided into four sub-fields. 

Archaeology examines the past using material remains, including artifacts, skeletal material, and architecture. 

Social and cultural anthropology is concerned with contemporary human societies throughout the world, and their complex inter-and intra-relationships. 

Linguistic anthropology examines diversity in language, including historical migrations and relationships between languages. 

Biological anthropology concerns human biological evolution and biological variation, including skeletal and genetic, and the interaction between human biology and our environments.

KPU's Anthropology students work toward leadership-based careers integrated with local and global communities. 

Students will cultivate and demonstrate skills in inter- and intra-cultural communication, analysis, and both scientific and humanistic methodology.

The Associate Degree is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students for work, citizenship, and an enriched life as an educated person, and to lay a solid foundation for further study in the field of Anthropology.
