|Description:||Anthropology in its broadest sense is the study of what it is to be human. Anthropology differs from all other disciplines that study human beings because it is holistic, historic, global, and comparative. Anthropologists study the cultures, social organization, languages, and environmental relationships of societies and populations around the globe, and their physical and genetic diversity. Anthropology also examines the evidence gained through archaeology to learn about peoples of the past, and our primate relatives to help understand both our human uniqueness and our similarity with other primates.
Anthropology at AU is based on a four-field approach: we offer courses in the broad areas of sociocultural anthropology, linguistic anthropology, archaeology, and biological anthropology (also called physical anthropology). This is a three-year program with a concentration in Anthropology.
