Yavapai College

Anthropology is the study of the past, present, and future of the human species and its closest non-human relatives. Anthropology majors study and explore problems using theories and methods from a diverse set of disciplines including biology, archaeology, linguistics, sociology, economics, and global health. Laboratory and field-based courses give anthropology majors hands-on learning experiences that teach the skills of a working anthropologist. From ancient civilizations to language to the continued evolution of humankind, anthropology is a degree that explores all the factors that make humans unique.
