Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of the cultural, historical, physical, and linguistic behavior of people from all parts of the globe both in the past and the present. It allows students to develop an appreciation for all the ways of life that exist or have existed on our planet and to understand how they came into being, how they interact, and how they change. Anthropology offers a broad background in holistic and engaged research methods such as ethnography that are widely used in interior design, product design, architecture, city planning, organizational studies, marketing, and many other fields.
