Anthropology | LBCC


Anthropology provides students with the tools to understand the globalized, contemporary world. With one foot in the humanities and the other in social sciences, anthropology is uniquely situated to engage our shared challenges in all human arenas.

Whatever career path you may choose, your studies in anthropology will change the way you view and interact with the world. The discipline breeds innovation into the daily workings of one's everyday life.
