Applied Anthropology, Undergraduate Certificate


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 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. Anthropology accepts applications for the certificate in applied anthropology on October 15 and March 15 of each year.
