Do you ever wonder how people can be so different from one another or how parts of the country and world can be so distinct? The field of Anthropology looks at people while the field of Sociology looks at societies. In this department, too, you’ll find American Studies, African-American Studies, Geography and Future Studies, all of which provide different perspectives on culture and society. If you’re drawn to understanding people, places or even considering what the future might look like, you’ll want to explore the many courses and programs that make up this department.
AACC offers courses in all of the areas above. Students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in one of these areas should talk to their advisor about the Transfer Studies or Liberal Arts, Arts and Sciences Transfer A.A. degrees. AACC also offers a degree in Sociology.
