Studying Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humans. The sub-fields within anthropology are Archaeology, Cultural Anthropology, Biological Anthropology, and Linguistics. Anthropology as a discipline teaches/promotes:

  • holism - the concept that all aspects of human behavior are interrelated and important in understanding what it means to be human,
  • cross-cultural analyses - to understand the wide range of diversity in human behavior in order to eliminate prejudice and bias,
  • human diversity  - uses a variety of methods to observe and measure the range of human behavior and culture,
  • problem solving - using Applied Anthropology to assess and solve social problems.

Anthropological perspectives provide students with unique abilities to contribute to standard job skills such as: diversity sensitivity, management, interviewing techniques, research/program design, statistical/survey techniques, teaching/training, communication.
