Anthropology & Sociology

Day/Evening Program

The Liberal Arts Degree in Anthropology/Sociology has been developed to provide the first two years of preparation for a student wishing to complete a bachelor degree with a major in anthropology or sociology.  The study of anthropology/sociology is essential because it equips students with the ability to synthesize multiple perspectives and contexts in a holistic view.

The coursework is designed for transfer to a four year institution where students may follow a pathway leading to a career in politics, public health, government, or education.
