ANTH 3400 Applied Anthropology

What can anthropologists offer to the solution of contemporary human problems? What practical contributions can their theories, methods, and insights make to the world? This course explores avenues traditionally sought by anthropologists to apply their knowledge to complex and diverse social situations, and debates the consequences of such involvement and ethical dilemmas they face. The course seeks to prepare students for a wide range of career applications. It offers training in the analysis of social systems and interactions, encourages the development of specialized knowledge in other fields, and creates awareness of opportunities for policy-oriented research, program evaluation, cultural brokerage, and advocacy.
