Anthropology

How are humans alike? How are they different? How did we become the way we are? If these sorts of questions interest you, consider studying anthropology at NMC. You'll get to study the role of society and culture in the history of the human species.

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 also offers specialty courses in nautical and underwater archaeology that may not be found at larger institutions, where you'll get to take a look at case studies and historical sites worldwide and in the Great Lakes. You'll even have the chance to get out of the classroom and into the field on some open water. Diving is not required of students, though it is encouraged. Foreshore projects will be available for students who are non-divers.

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.
