Study Humanity. Study Anthropology and Sociology.

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 consider the past, through archaeology, to see how human groups lived hundreds or thousands of years ago and what was important to them.

With courses in Sociology, you'll study social life, social change, and the social causes and consequences of human behavior. You'll focus on the relations among people, groups, classes, organizations, and cultures.
