  • Anthropology

    Anthropology is the study of human beings and their ancestors. It does this in a few ways. It studies this biologically by examining the fossil record, socially by studying cultures and their evolution, and historically by using the archeological record. It seeks to answer such burning questions as why did we develop religion? How did we change economically? How is language used and why did we develop it? What did ancient societies look like? What values might they have had?

    This plan aligns with the Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree.
