You can find anthropologists in the most unusual places. They might be in some exotic place studying cultures or excavating archeological sites. Or they might be helping to relocate tribes from the disappearing Amazon rain forests. On the other hand, you might find one in New York City advising a grocery store on how to organize its goods for maximum customer appeal.

Such is the variety of this field. Anthropology is the study of humans--those who lived in past cultures as well as those alive today. Anthropologists typically share an active curiosity, an interest in travel and the discipline to pursue their specialty.

Most jobs in this field are in teaching or museum work, but more and more anthropologists are being hired as consultants to businesses whose bottom line depends upon understanding human behavior.

The SFCC anthropology program offers classes in introductory anthropology, cultural anthropology, stone age survival and the cultures of North America's native peoples.

All course offerings are subject to change. The college cannot guarantee class offerings, designated times or specific instructors - as funding levels and student interest may affect whether or not an offering is available.
