Anthropology

Course Descriptions:
Overview
The Anthropology Program at Western is committed to supporting the "Four-Field Method" of Anthropology. Offering courses in Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics, and Physical Anthropology, plus sub-disciplines such as the Anthropology of North American Indians and World Culture, Western students graduate with the core courses necessary to pursue a Bachelor's degree at any four-year institution or moving directly into the workforce. Field Courses in Archaeological Methodology and Paleoindian Rock Art round out the student experience. An Associate of Arts in Anthropology is valuable to employers in the public arm of Archaeology, termed Cultural Resource Management, for hiring at the crew level.

Cultural Resource Management (CRM) crews conduct archaeological surveys and excavations necessary for regulatory compliance to build on federal or state land, or land in which federal or state tax money is being utilized. This is a growing field, and students have an excellent opportunity to move upwards by completing the Bachelor's degree. The AA in Anthropology is articulated with several four-year universities in the region, making transfer smoother for the student. These articulation agreements are based on the quality of the faculty in the program, and the proven performance of our students as they transition to other schools.
PROGRAMS and DEGREE REQUIREMENTS:
There is one program option for Anthropology. The Associate of Arts requires 65 credits over 4 recommended semesters.
