Study Humanity. Study Anthropology


When taking a course in Anthropology, you'll study humanity by examining the origin, behavior and development of humans and what it means to be human in the cultural sense. You'll learn how scientific research methodology allows us to see how human groups lived thousands of years ago and discover how culture and values have evolved over time.
