Anthropology (Credit: 0.50)

Anthropology is a behavioral science that focuses on the study of humanity and culture. Anthropologists research the characteristics and origin of the cultural, social, and physical development of humans. They may also determine why some cultures change and other cultures come to an end. Students learn the foundations of the five main branches of anthropology including physical, social, linguistic, archaeology, and cultural. They are provided the opportunity to apply their observational skills to the real-life study of cultures in the United States and around the world.
