General Description / Special Programs
Anthropology is a diverse and comprehensive discipline that investigates the biological and cultural life of human beings in all times and in all places. An anthropology degree provides students with an appreciation of other ways of life, different systems of belief and knowledge, and, perhaps most importantly, a better understanding of the world in which they live. The department of anthropology at Saddleback College is committed to teaching each of the four sub-fields of the discipline: cultural anthropology, archaeology, linguistic anthropology, and biological anthropology. The department also has a strong emphasis on the study of contemporary issues, such as ethnic and transnational identity, political conflict and social movements, human rights and indigenous rights, the cross-cultural making and meaning of race and gender, and the anthropological study of science. Saddleback College offers a wide range of anthropology courses taught both traditionally and online.
