Anthropology explores the widest possible definition of human diversity through research, history and comparative analysis to better comprehend future trends as well.

Anthropologists test hypotheses largely through fieldwork. The program at City College is designed to offer students a background in the four fields of the discipline:

  • Archaeology
  • Sociocultural Anthropology
  • Linguistic Anthropology
  • Physical Anthropology
