Anthropology Research Certificate


Program: Research Certificate in Anthropology
Department of Anthropology
College of Arts and Sciences

Kettler Hall G11A ~ 260-481-6272 ~ www.ipfw.edu/anthropology


The student learning outcomes for the degree are as follows: 

  • Achieve familiarity with different cultures in at least two regions of the world
  • Know the major anthropological approaches to understanding the human condition
  • Be able to explain societies in a holistic manner
  • Achieve competency in writing
  • Demonstrate critical thinking
  • Acquire quantitative skills for analysis
  • Demonstrate a willingness to engage learning and scholarship as a life-long endeavor

Courses in anthropology provide an understanding of the nature of cultures and help you assess various explanations of human behavior; they also assist in the development of analytical and critical abilities. The curriculum is structured to include studies in the history and theory of anthropology, in four anthropological fields (ethnology, archaeology, bioanthropology, and linguistics), in at least two different world ethnographic areas, and in topical specializations. The program helps you prepare for graduate study, for teaching, and for careers in which the understanding of various cultures is an asset.

Although a minor is not required for the B.A. with a major in anthropology, an outside concentration is recommended. Fifteen credits in history, political science, psychology, or sociology support the concentration.
