Program Description


Anthropology is the study of humankind - its origins, evolution, and diverse cultures. ANTH 131 serves as the basic introduction to the world of anthropology. Although it is recommended that students take this course before those at a higher level, it is not required. Many students, especially science majors, prefer to take ANTH 152 directly, thereby fulfilling an important foreign culture requirement at many four-year institutions.

Requirements are subject to change. The information represented here is effective starting Fall 2017 and applies to the current catalog year. If you were admitted prior to this year, please check your requirements under the My Progress section of HFC Self Service.
