Anthropology Class Includes Inside Look at TV Culture

Students who’d like to explore cultural diversity and get an inside look at the Discovery and History Channel shows should register for Scotty Moore’s  Introduction to Cultural Anthropology at Lone Star College-CyFair.

In Moore’s ANTH 2351 course, students will study contemporary and recent groups of humans including their social, religious, economic and political organization. They will learn how practicing cultural relativism increases the understanding of other cultures as well as how cultural anthropology can be applied to solve human problems.

In addition, Moore will bring a bit of “television culture” into the classroom. As host of Discovery Channel’s program Bone Detectives (http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/bone-detectives/bone-detectives.html) he serves as consultant for other Discovery shows. He will give his students some insight into how such shows are produced and directed.

For those interested in an anthropology career, anthropologists work in a variety of industries, such as in scientific research and development; in local to federal government; in architectural, engineering and related services; in management, scientific and technical consulting services; museums and historical sites and higher education. Annual median salaries range from $46,890 to $71,400 according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010-2011 Edition on the United States Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics web site www.bls.gov/oco.
