Anthropology is the study of human nature, human society, and the human past. As a holistic study of the human experience, anthropology encompasses information from the natural sciences and humanities. Anthropologists study living cultures (cultural anthropology), prehistoric cultures (archaeology), human evolution and biological diversity (physical/biological anthropology), and the history and cultural contexts of language (linguistics).
With an anthropology minor or an anthropology emphasis in the sociology program, you will be able to:
- use both physical and social sciences to solve problems.
- recognize how past cultures shape present norms and values.
- successfully relate to a world in which cultural interaction and diversity have expanded dramatically and multiculturalism is the norm rather than a distant concept.
