Anthropology - ANTH

Anthropology is the study of humankind. It is a holistic discipline, involving the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences that examines various aspects of past and present-day humans across the globe. It consists of four fields: Archaeology, Biological Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, and Linguistic Anthropology. Archaeology investigates past human cultures through material culture. Biological Anthropology studies the social behavior and the biological aspects of humans within an evolutionary framework. Cultural Anthropology focuses on sociocultural variation among humans. Linguistic Anthropology examines how language and communication reflect and influence social life. From this wide perspective, anthropology helps us to understand other peoples and thereby enables us to better understand ourselves.
