Anthropology is the study of humankind around the world and throughout time, with the goal of understanding our evolutionary origins, our biological distinction as a species, and our diverse manifestations of culture. A degree in anthropology provides the student with basic skills in critical analysis, application of the scientific method, and cross-cultural understanding.
