The Blinn College District Associate of Arts in Anthropology familiarizes you with the differing theories of human origins and biocultural adaptations. The program provides hands-on experience in laboratory techniques and experimentation that usually are reserved only for graduate students and graduates can transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in anthropology.

Certain anthropology courses meet the requirements for International and Cultural Diversity credits at Texas A&M University.
