Anthropology

The anthropology program provides students with a foundation of general education and core courses that are enriched with anthropological topics, perspective and focus. This program of study prepares students to successfully pursue their professional and personal endeavors in an increasingly globalized world.

Courses in the Anthropology program provide a strong academic foundation for students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution of higher education to continue studying Anthropology and its four subfields which include cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, and physical anthropology.

Area universities that offer a degree in one or more of these fields include: North Texas, Texas A&M, Texas State, Texas Tech, the University of Texas, and the University of Texas at San Antonio.
