ANT 3150 - Applied Anthropology

3 cr
Applied anthropology is the application of anthropological knowledge, methodology, and theoretical approaches to address contemporary human problems. This course introduces the basic issues of applied anthropology such as the history, ethics, and methods, and reviews cases in the major domains of the field. Applied anthropology is innately participatory and promotes community-centered praxis, an approach rooted in action, advocacy, and collaborative research. Therefore, students are required to complete at least 20 hours of community-based service as a key component of this course. The course provides students with the training for work in fields such as education, health and medicine, business and industry, environment and sustainability, and economic development.
