  • Anthropologists study human beings and their societies from their beginning to the present day. Anthropologists examine cultures, languages and physical characteristics of people and their origins, development and behavior. They seek to understand the geographic space and evolutionary time of human existence. A central concern of anthropologists is the application of knowledge to the solution of human problems.
    Our Introduction to Anthropology course as part of its Academic Transfer program and also meets general education requirements in other programs. It explores physical evolution of humans and the origins of culture with emphasis upon cross cultural comparisons.
    Anthropologists typically need a master’s degree or doctorate, while those with a bachelor’s degree may find work as assistants or fieldworkers. You can start on the path to becoming an anthropologist by completing an associate of science degree at Central Community College and then transferring to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree in anthropology.
