Tennessee Transfer Pathway (AA), Anthropology

Overview

Why Start at Roane State?

Coming to Roane State for two years and then transferring is one of the most affordable ways to earn your bachelor’s degree.

Plus, you will have small classes, which is especially beneficial for tough subjects students usually take in their freshman or sophomore years. At a big university, you may have 100 students in your freshman biology class. At Roane State, you will have about 20 students in your freshman biology class, and your professor will know you on a first-name basis.

Roane State also offers many of the student experiences you get at four-year schools, including athletics, clubs, intramurals, theatre, music (join concert choir, Celebration Singers, jazz band, or our bluegrass band), lectures by leading scholars and speakers, movie nights, festivals, art shows, and opportunities to study abroad.

Anthropology subfields

Most four-year colleges offer three subfields in anthropology: cultural anthropology, archaeology, and physical anthropology. Work with your advisor to decide which subfield will be best for you.
