On July 19, 2015, the Marylhurst community will gather to celebrate the life of Dr. Duane Gehlsen who taught anthropology in the Department of Human Sciences until his recent, unexpected passing.
Anthropology examines how culture structures and gives meaning to our individual lives, as as well as to human experience cross-culturally.
Because of the multidisciplinary foundation of our BA in Social Sciences program, the anthropology concentration will help prepare you for professional work that focuses on the human diversity and cross-cultural issues in the non-profit sector, the legal system, community development and grassroots organizing, public relations and administration, and applied research.
In the anthropology concentration, you'll take the following courses, for a total of 18 credits:
- Cultural Anthropology
- Introduction to Human Evolution
- Peoples & Societies of the World
- Two additional upper-division anthropology courses
Please see the current Marylhurst University catalog for complete information.
