General Anthropology

The General Anthropology stream consists of a variety of courses for students who want to complete a degree in anthropology, but who do not want to focus their studies in the direction of any of the other streams. Many of these courses will be those of interest to students planning a career in a field other than anthropology, such as community development, journalism, law, tourism, the public service sector, museology or the health sciences.
