Anthropology

The Anthropology program at College of DuPage enables students to explore the cultural, physical and prehistorical aspects of human beings. Anthropological fieldwork can help students delve into a career, culture or aspect of life that is a particular interest. Students can pursue anthropology as a baccalaureate field of study or take anthropology courses as part of other academic, occupational and pre-professional programs.

Please note: A reading placement test is not required for students entering the Anthropology program or courses.
