ANTH 457 - Applied Anthropology


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

Applied anthropology 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 then examines at length the work of contemporary applied anthropologists in programs of inter­national economic development (health, agriculture, and education), in domestic human service planning and delivery, in cultural resource preser­vation, and in their role as advocates for unempowered minorities.
