SYD 6901-U01 Special Topics - Applied Anthropology

Applied and practicing anthropologists use anthropological theory, method and knowledge to address human problems. This course is designed to prepare students to conduct research, teach, and practice applied anthropology in both academic and nonacademic settings.

It emphasizes the theory, methods and skills necessary for successful professional roles working with non-profit institutions, companies, and governments to plan, implement, and evaluate programs, products, services, policies, and laws. It will focus on effecting policy changes at the international, national and local levels.

Throughout the course we will move towards a theory-practice synthesis.
