Fully Online Degree Completion Program
The mission of SJSU Online is to expand higher education access and degree attainment for learners requiring a fully online degree pathway. This upper division degree completion program is offered through a special session that requires a separate application process.
The Department of Anthropology provides students with an integrated anthropological experience through coursework in archeology, cultural anthropology, and physical anthropology. This broad training prepares our students for a wide range of careers in diverse fields including project management, health care, education, immigrant services, heritage management, museum curation, business and industry, and much more. Anthropology majors learn many useful skills including cultural competency, critical thinking, research design, and professional writing-skills that are increasing in demand in private, public, and non-profit organizations.
The program is delivered completely online. Classes will be delivered fully online both asynchronously (no designated days/times) and synchronously (designated days/times).
