Journey Into The Human Experience

Humans developing a sense of identity and individuality. Assimilating into the cultures around us. Finding solutions to contemporary social problems. Where does one begin to explore such issues? The Anthropology Department at City College of San Francisco.

Join us as we challenge our views of humanity and delve into the rich and complicated customs, traditions, and value systems around the world. It’s all about diversity, cultural patterns and practices – from the exotic to the outrageous to the strangely familiar. Through understanding, gain a cross-cultural perspective.
