Anthropology Pathway, A.A.

Return to Cultural and Behavioral Sciences  

Anthropology is the study of human cultural and biological diversity across time. The discipline includes four sub-areas: socio-cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistics and biological anthropology. Anthropology students are taught holistic and comparative approaches to the study of the human condition and develop a strong grasp of the causes and consequences of globalization. The Anthropology guided pathway at Perimeter College provides the freshman and sophomore coursework required by most fouryear institutions.

Special Note: Students who plan to pursue the B.A. in Anthropology at the Georgia State University’s Atlanta campus must complete ANTH 2010, ANTH 2020, and ANTH 2030 in Area F or as elective options in the B.A. degree.
