The Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer degree is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in Anthropology.
The Gavilan College Anthropology Program encompasses three subfields: cultural anthropology, physical anthropology, and archaeology. Together, these subfields offer a broad range of perspectives on the experiences and politics of being human. The courses offered teach students to develop a comprehensive understanding of humans in their diversity and complexity. These courses may be taken to satisfy the General Education requirements or to meet the requirements for an Associate in Arts in Anthropology for Transfer (ADT) degree. The ADT in Anthropology degree prepares students to transfer into the CSU system to pursue a baccalaureate degree in Anthropology or a related major.
