Description

Anthropologists ask questions such as: Do non-human primates deceive each other? Why do many primates live in groups? How does grooming strengthen social bonds?



Biological anthropologists (also known as physical anthropologists) study the fossil remains of our human ancestors, the living primates, as well as the adaptation of living humans to different environments. During the course of your studies, you'll gain statistical analysis skills, research capabilities, written and verbal communication skills, and a deeper understanding of what it means to be human
