Anthropology

Associate of Arts Degree

The Associate of Arts degree in Anthropology provides students with the first two years of coursework towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in anthropology, preparing them for transfer to an institution that grants a baccalaureate degree. This degree plan offers a broad background of liberal arts courses transferable to a four-year institution, focusing on the cultural and biological diversity of the human species.

Students who plan to transfer to an institution that grants a baccalaureate degree to continue their study of anthropology should refer to the catalog of that institution for their degree requirements and consult with an ACC instructor of anthropology. To receive an Associate of Arts degree in Anthropology, students must participate in a graduation interview with a full-time anthropology instructor during the final semester.
