Anthropology is the study of what makes us human.

It focuses on understanding people past and present, both culturally and biologically. Anthropologists study the past, through archaeology, to see how human groups lived hundreds or thousands of years ago and what was important to them.

Get More with the Core Curriculum

The core of learning in college is a set of courses that will provide you with the knowledge, skills and educational experiences you need to succeed in higher education. Those classes — called the Core Curriculum — are the courses that lead to an associate degree from the colleges of DCCCD and which transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Students who complete the DCCCD Core Curriculum with at least a 2.0 grade point average are guaranteed that their courses will transfer as a block of credit to any Texas public college or university. State law mandates that individual Core courses must be accepted as well by the transfer institution.
