What’s Happening

We are excited about starting the Fall 2019 semester with a variety of classes and activities.   Our archaeology excavation class at Rancho Penasquitos Adobe starts Saturday, August 24.  Our first meeting will take place at Palomar College at 8:00 am in room MD-124.    Get ready to dig, learn about the past, have fun, and meet new people!   You may want to consider getting our Archaeology Certificate which can land you a job in the Cultural Resource Management (CRM) industry.

We offer all types of classes that are not only interesting but meet general requirements like Introduction to Biological Anthropology (Anth 100) satisfies the natural science/life science requirements for UC and CSU; and Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (Anth 105) satisfies the social and behavioral sciences for UC and CSU.

Keep a look out for Anthropology Days coming in October 30 and 31 – there will be stone tool making, spear throwing, cave paintings, skeletons, scavenger hunts, snacks, music, presentations, and experts to talk to!

Stay tuned for Anthropology Club announcements.  If you are interested in being an Anthropology Club Officer please contact us!
