Anthropology, Associate in Arts for Transfer
The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer is designed for students planning to transfer to a California State University (CSU) with a major in Anthropology.
Anthropology is the study of humanity, including its culture, biology, language and history. It is an interdisciplinary field that combines anthropological perspectives and concepts with those of biology, geology, psychology, sociology, and mathematics. Courses in anthropology provide students with an opportunity to gain a variety of important skills which are essential for success in today's workforce. These include critical thinking and problem solving skills, verbal and written communication skills, as well as the ability to collaborate and work effectively and responsibly as a member of a team. All of this is achieved within the context of gaining a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts of anthropology. The completion of this degree ensures preparation for upper division work for students seeking to transfer and pursue a baccalaureate degree in Anthropology from a California State University (CSU).
