Why Study Anthropology?
Anthropology is the study of humanity—our biology and behavior, past and present. Anthropologists study living people across cultures and populations; past people through fossil, archeological, and historical records; as well as living and extinct nonhuman primates.
- Technical proficiency and teamwork skills
- Effective oral and written communication
- Deeper understanding of human behavior and biology and the human experience
