Anthropology is "the study of people." The central questions in this discipline have to do with where humans came from, where they are going, who they are, what their nature is, and how cultures vary. There are several different types of anthropology that you can explore: archaeology, cultural anthropology, physical (or biological) anthropology and linguistics.
The Anthropology program at Oxnard College offers a selection of lower division courses in physical anthropology, cultural anthropology, gender, cross-cultural psychology, peoples of the world, prehistory, linguistics and archaeology.
