The Anthropology, Associate of Science degree program is designed for students interested in completing a bachelor’s degree at Oregon State University (OSU) in Anthropology. Students interested in this option are strongly encouraged to enroll in the Degree Partnership Program (DPP) as there may be lower division courses required by their chosen discipline that are only offered at Oregon State University. Students interested in a general transfer degree should follow the guidelines for the AAOT and work with an advisor from the college/university they plan to transfer to to be sure the appropriate courses are being taken at LBCC.

An OSU Bachelor of Arts degree requires that students take two years of a college-level second language.  While this is not a requirement of this Associate of Science degree, it is highly recommended that students complete this coursework at LBCC, or after transfer using the Degree Partnership Program.

Students interested in completing a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology at OSU will choose from one of four sub-disciplines as they move on to OSU: Physical (or Biological) Anthropology, Archeology, Linguistics, or Cultural Anthropology. Anthropologists are employed in a wide variety of professions and can be found in corporations, all levels of government and the military, museums and other educational institutions, and non-profit organizations.
