There are 2 kinds of people in the world...
People who are fascinated by Anthropology.
People who have no idea what exactly Anthropology is.
Many people think Anthropology is digging up dinosaurs, but nope, that's paleontology. Others think it's like Indiana Jones. Or the American TV show, "Bones." But there is a LOT more to Anthropology!
If YOU aren't sure what Anthropology is exactly, that's okay! I'm going to tell you about a way to learn about Anthropology, all without having to enroll in a college or university!
Who am I? And, how do I know about Anthropology?
Hi, I’m Keirsten Snover and I’m an Anthropologist! I have not just one, but TWO Master’s degrees in Anthropology (in addition to a Bachelor’s degree). I’ve studied Anthropology at universities for almost 10 years! And during that time, I won 10 awards for my work. Plus, I’ve even worked as a Medical Anthropologist for the Cleveland Clinic, the #2 hospital in the world!
I was frustrated because there weren’t many options for people to study Anthropology besides going to college. So, that's why I created Anthropology 4U... A small business that offers online courses in ALL 4 fields of Anthropology!
I'm SO excited to tell you about my new FREE online mini-course, "What is Anthropology?" Keep reading to learn more!

What is the format of this course?
Two kinds of video lectures!
This course is made up of 2 kinds of video lectures:
#1: Talking head videos. In these videos, you'll see my face on the screen, and I'll be talking to you.
#2: Narrated slideshows. Most of the videos are narrated slideshows. In these videos, you'll see PowerPoint slides (well, since I have a Mac, they're technically Keynote slides!) and I'll be talking in the background. You can see an example of a slide in the image on the right!
Activities to help you engage with the course content!
At the end of each of the main units, there is a short activity to do. These are short assignments to help you explore the lectures even more. Each one should only take about 15 to 30 minutes to do.
For each activity, you just download a PDF worksheet. Then, you follow the directions and type your answers directly into the PDF. It will be easiest to do these worksheets on a computer. If you don’t have a computer, or you don’t want to use a computer, you can just write your answers down in a notebook.
Also, you don’t need to turn the activity worksheets in—they are for your personal reflection and to help you engage with the course materials. So how do you know if you got the right answers? Well, I’ll go over each activity in the next lecture. I’ll also give you a completed worksheet to download that has the correct answers on it. You can see an example of an activity worksheet on the left!
And, at the end of each unit, there is a short quiz with 5 multiple-choice questions. You need to earn 80% or higher to pass the course. But, during the quiz, you can use any notes you took during the lectures!
And that's not all! I'm also including TWO bonus items!
The first Bonus is a PDF containing links to Anthropology resources that are related to the course. So for this mini-course, the links include a few websites, some online articles to read, a couple of free textbooks, and some TED talks.
The second Bonus is a list of links to some digital flashcards that I made just for this course. You can test your knowledge of the course material with these digital flashcards! You can also play a matching game with the information on the flashcards, too!
So be sure to check these bonuses out at the end of the course!
And, I'm offering a full-color personalized certificate!
The software I'm using to host my online courses automatically gives you a simple black and white certificate of completion. But that's not good enough for me!
So, I'm offering you a full-color personalized certificate when you complete the course!
Just send me an email through the Contact page when you finish the course. And be sure to let me know the exact name you want on the certificate, and I'll email one to you! You can see an example of the certificate on the left.
