The Anthropology Program at Western is committed to supporting the “Four-Field Method” of Anthropology. Offering courses in Cultural Anthropology, Archaeology, Linguistics, and Bioanthropology, 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, as well as state and federal agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management and State Historical Preservation Office.
