ANTH 305 - Applying Anthropology

3 Credit(s)

Today, about one-half of all professional anthropologists work in non-academic settings. Applied, or practicing, anthropologists may be trained in any or all of the sub-fields of anthropology and work in various contexts. This course will build on the ways in which anthropological theory and method are used practically in occupations related to health and medicine, international development, environment, government, business and education, immigration and poverty. Through an exploration of case studies, students will come to understand the ethical, financial, social, methodological and practical issues of applying anthropological theory to real-life situations. Fall.

Prerequisite(s): ANTH 201 , ANTH 202 , ANTH 203 , ANTH 204  or ANTH 270 .
