ANTH 457 - Applied Anthropology


Class Hours: 3
Lab/Discussion: 0
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: ANTH 456   or instructor permission.
Description: Focuses on the anthropologist as an agent of social change and bridges the gap between theories of cultural behavior and the policies that affect contemporary cultures. Examines the historical role of anthropologists in early public administration and explores the work of contemporary applied anthropologists in domains of practice such as international development, health, human rights, business and marketing, the environment, education, and in their role as advocates for marginalized communities.  Activities allow students to apply anthropological methods and concepts to better appreciate and communicate the value of these skills in varied professional settings.
