Certificate in Applied Anthropology

Requirements for a Certificate in Applied Anthropology

A certificate in applied anthropology is a strong curricular addition to the degrees offered at GVSU. This 15 credit hour certificate in applied anthropology provides students at Grand Valley State University with a foundational knowledge of applied anthropology, its principles, and actual experience through an internship. This certificate can be completed in three semesters (winter, summer, fall), if all prerequisites were completed previously.

A certificate in applied anthropology is neither a major nor a minor; it is a focused investigation into an area of cultural resource management, medical anthropology, development, or conservation. Students must earn a bachelor's degree to earn this certificate.
