Anthropology is the study of humans in the past and present. Through the traditional four areas of cultural anthropology, archaeology, biological/physical anthropology, and linguistics, anthropologists examine every aspect of humanity through a holistic, comparative, and scientific approach.
FIELDWORK. INTERVIEWS. STUDIES.
Cultural anthropology is concerned with the study of living societies. Archaeology seeks to understand cultures, often of the past, through their material remains. Biological/physical anthropology focuses on humans as a biological species, studying origins, development, and variations within the species. Linguistic anthropology studies language and communication, which preserve and transmit cultures across generations.

Each anthropology course at Cowley College incorporates a basic fieldwork component, such as ethnographic interviews, archaeological surveys and digs, and primate behavior studies at area zoos.
The Associate of Arts degree in anthropology is intended to provide graduates with a strong foundation in the traditional four-field approach. These course recommendations prepare students to transfer successfully into bachelor's degree programs. Note: This pathway is specifically aligned with Wichita State University's (WSU) 2+2 articulated agreement to meet the requirements for admission into their program.
