Dr. Jim Davis, human sciences faculty, traveled to Washington, D.C. in June 2014 to share Oregon's efforts to combat mental health issues and addiction in seniors with the National Coalition on Mental Health and Aging.
Anthropology examines how culture structures and gives meaning to our individual lives, as as well as to human experience cross-culturally.
Because of the multidisciplinary foundation of our BA in Social Sciences program, the anthropology concentration will help prepare you for professional work that focuses on the human diversity and cross-cultural issues in the non-profit sector, the legal system, community development and grassroots organizing, public relations and administration, and applied research.
In the anthropology concentration, you'll take the following courses, for a total of 18 credits:
- Cultural Anthropology
- Introduction to Human Evolution
- Peoples & Societies of the World
- Two additional upper-division anthropology courses
