About

The goal of the Bachelor of Arts Major in Anthropology Program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University is to prepare students for life, work, and research in diverse local and global communities. 

Overview

The emphasis of Anthropologists at Kwantlen Polytechnic University is the applied aspect of our profession. Our teaching is realized through hands-on activities, lab work, and community events whose experience has the ultimate goal of understanding any aspect of humans and their activities.

Key facts:

At KPU we offer two streams of study: Archaeology-Biological and Social-Cultural. 

  • The Archaeology-Biological stream has a unique component in that our current anthropology field school involves direct interaction at a high level with First Nations communities and Anthropology professionals, and has been endorsed by the British Columbia Association of Professional Archaeologists, the first such endorsement in Canada. 
  • The Social-Cultural stream prepares students for a knowledge- and information-based economy in a world that is increasingly globally interconnected. Learning in this area of our field is conducted through a high degree of community service work involving brokering between divergent stakeholders.
