Cultural Anthropology studies human society and culture.  As both a social science and a humanities course, Cultural Anthropology meets the World Cultures requirement at most transfer institutions. 

Cultural Anthropology at Bay College is offered in a traditional format at  both the main campus and at Bay College West, and also as an online course.

As a humanities course, Cultural Anthropology looks at how different people throughout the world create a sense of meaning through art, religion, language, and ideas.
As a social science, Cultural Anthropology studies issues of ethnicity and race,  making a living, marriage, gender and political systems. Special attention also focuses on research methodology and ethics.

  • Cultural Anthropology
  • Archaeological Anthropology
  • Biological or Physical Anthropology
