Anthropology Course List

Anthropology already provides numerous benefits and opportunities for KPU students. Our courses are useful electives for students in Criminology, Geography, Sociology, Nursing and other departments. The 1000 level courses are an integral part of the current Associate of Arts Degree and Bachelor of Arts Degree programs, and will continue to comprise a large number of our sections. As well, ANTH 1217 (Forensic Anthropology) also serves as a science requirement for a minor degree, which is especially appealing to criminology students.
