The mission of Anthropology at Richland College is to educate students in the basic elements of our discipline by providing guidance and learning opportunities to them.

Anthropology is a discipline concerned with all aspects of human biological and cultural variation in time and space. At Richland College, students learn fundamentals of various specialties in Anthropology and their interactions and links with one another, and their relation to other academic fields. We aim to see that students, informed by Anthropological perspectives, will be able to thrive as human beings who inhabit diverse and changing environments and who manifest both similarity and diversity across space and time.
