Anthropology Department


Department Includes Anthropology & Archaeology

Satisfy Multiple Purposes

North offers a variety of physical and cultural anthropology and archaeology courses, including online and hybrid classes.

Course offerings include Survey of Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Principles of Archaeology and Northwest Coast Indians.

Satisfy Multiple Purposes

Anthropology courses satisfy AA degree or transfer preparation without a degree, or requirements for career training programs (for example, nursing students take cultural anthropology), as well as providing individual courses for those already in a 4-year school and for personal enrichment.

Omara Abe
Anthropology Faculty

One of North’s original faculty members, Omara Benjamin Abe calls anthropology the “jack of all studies” because, even though a relatively new discipline, it has no end and no boundaries.
