Anthropology Transfer Major, A.A.

Program is designed for students wanting to complete the first 2 years of a bachelor's degree and transfer to a university to complete a BA in Anthropology. Students explore cultural and biological anthropology. Careers often require a master's degree. Anthropology is the study of human society, life, and culture. It answers questions about how people lived, what they thought, and how they interacted with their environment. This gives us an understanding of the world today, and how the future world may develop. This program introduces students to the study of Anthropology and includes courses that are common to all Colorado four-year institutions. Career paths for Anthropology degree holders include market research, field and medical research, museum management, public health, community studies, cultural studies, and field studies in archaeology. The Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Anthropology prepares students to complete the second half of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Anthropology at a four-year university.
