The Associate of Arts Degree with Designation in Anthropology prepares students to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree in anthropology. A degree in anthropology offers many career and educational opportunities. Careers in anthropology include museum education, field and medical research, higher-education teaching, public health, environmental assessment, community studies coordination, ethnic and cultural studies and field studies in archaeology.
Anthropology is the study of the evolution of human society, life and culture. Specifically, anthropology answers the questions of how people lived, what they thought and how they interacted with their particular environment. Studying how societies have developed and changed from the past to the present, anthropology provides a critical understanding of the world today and how the future world may evolve.
