Program Overview

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:-

Athropology is the study of humankind. Studying anthropology offers an opportunity to expand your studies of humanity across various subfields: Social/Cultural, Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, and Linguistics (Languages offered through LANC department). At KPU, we also have many opportunity for students to apply anthropological methods in real settings, by working in conjunction with communities, individuals and/or interdisciplinary teams, to solve problems, as part of an additional subfield we call Applied Anthropology; we believe in teaching about the practical aspects of the world as well as the theoretical.

Depending upon your interests, anthropology can give you both arts and science credits. As an Anthropology student at KPU, you can focus on a Social/Cultural or Archaeological/Biological stream. Our main concepts are "culture" and "people". That's the reason anthropology courses teach people skills - every profession requires expert knowledge in this subject.
