Anthropology

Anthropology is about experiencing the amazing expression of human culture, whether by interacting with other cultures through travel; studying clothing, artwork, and tools; or seeking clues to the lives of past people through archaeological excavation. The central thread in each of these experiences is the desire to both understand human diversity and at the same time reveal the common factors that bind us together.  An education in anthropology provides the holistic perspective and analytical skills needed to understand human culture, which is increasingly valued in our interconnected and multicultural world. Above all, studying anthropology requires a sense of adventure and a willingness to transform your understanding of other people and yourself.
