Anthropology AA

Transfer Degree Description

Anthropologists put their endless curiosity to good use by providing unique expertise in addressing many of the challenges our communities face today. With their in-depth knowledge of humankind and deep understanding of how humanity has evolved over many centuries, anthropologists offer a valuable perspective on everything from public health concerns to longstanding issues of inequality. In an Anthropology program, you will learn how to identify and study how different cultures developed and changed with the passing of time. An anthropology degree aligns with a career in archaeology or paleontology but can also lead to opportunities in education, government, business, and several other fields.

An associate degree in Anthropology can be a first step toward a role as a historic preservationist, market researcher, human rights advocate, or museum director. This degree is transferable to universities offering a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology.
