Anthropology is the study of people from ancient to modern times, around the world. It involves the study of cultures, languages, archaeology, and human biology. By studying anthropology, students gain in-depth understanding of a variety of lifestyles through a cross-cultural, comparative perspective.

As part of the UH West O?ahu Bachelor of Arts in Social Sciences, with a concentration in Anthropology program, special emphasis is given to cultures of the Pacific Islands, including Hawai?i. Firsthand experiences investigating cultural diversity are strongly encouraged. Courses are offered in-class and through distance learning instruction.

Interested students may also pursue UH West O?ahu?s certificate in Applied Forensic Anthropology. This certificate program provides a solid foundation in forensic anthropology and an introduction to the wider field of forensic science. When combined with an Anthropology bachelor?s degree, the Applied Forensic Anthropology certificate offers students additional career opportunities and an advanced education in forensic anthropology and forensic science.
