California Polytechnic University, Pomona
Anthropology is the scientific study of the peoples of the world, past and
present, in the broadest possible sense: their total cultural and biological
heritage. The goal of anthropology is a complete understanding of the
human species, from its origins several million years ago to the present,
including all of its current cultural and biological diversity. Students
majoring in Anthropology in the department of Geography and
Anthropology enroll in one of three options: General Anthropology,
Cultural Resource Management, or Computer-Based Anthropology.
Through a common integrated core of courses selected from all four of
the major anthropological subfields (Sociocultural Anthropology,
Biological Anthropology, Archaeology, and Linguistics), each of the three
options provides students with a broad-based understanding of the
diverse subject matter of anthropology. Each option then diverges to
provide additional training aimed toward better serving the individual
needs of students with different specialty interests and career goals.
