If you have wide-ranging interests that span the sciences, arts, and humanities, an anthropology class is an excellent choice for you.

Humans speak approximately 7,000 different languages, dress in untold different ways, eat a wide variety of foods, practice many religions, and live their lives in unique ways. Anthropology, the study of human diversity, helps us make sense of all that diversity. In an anthropology class, you learn how to compare our differences and understand them in light of the similarities we all share. You can explore art, religion, history, language, biology, music, fashion, dance, and drama--all within the context of anthropology. ECC offers Cultural Anthropology, Archeology Lab Methods, Prehistoric Archeology, Human Evolution, and more.
