Anthropology is the study of humanity. Archeology is the study of the material humans leave behind. Students planning to pursue degrees in anthropology or archaeology at four-year colleges should take these courses. Introduction to cultural anthropology is a required course for many areas of study.

NMC offers speciality courses in Nautical and Underwater archaeology that may not be found at larger institutions. This area of study can include fieldwork and research activities in northwestern Michigan, as well as application of advanced technologies. Students planning careers in the following fields may find these courses useful: offshore oil and gas industry, underwater search and recovery (such as police divers), maritime and naval, university research, homeland security, commercial surveying, remote sensing (applied water-related technologies), cultural heritage development and management.
