Social sciences alum Susan Stoner retired in February 2015 as general counsel to Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757, and she reflected on her life as a hippie, activist and labor lawyer.
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
