Description:Take the first step to a career in museums, conservation, archaeology, cultural resource management, indigenous relations or representation, forensics, government, non-governmental organizations and much more with an Associate of Arts Degree in Anthropology. Anthropologists study virtually all aspects of human life, from human biology, to the creation and use of language, to the nature of culture and its role in adapting to the social and physical environment. Through this program, you'll examine and compare the thoughts, behaviours, material products and social organization of different cultural groups past and present, while gaining observational, record-keeping, critical-thinking and analytical skills that are appealing to employers in both the public and the private sectors.
