Why study Anthropology?
Anthropology is the study of people. It is also the collective name for a group of humanistic and biological sciences. The four major fields in anthropology: archaeology, anthropological linguistics, cultural anthropology, and physical anthropology. An anthropologist asks the questions and studies: "What does it means to be human?" "Why does a group behave in a particular way?" "What events in history have shaped the behavior of a group of people?" "What environmental factors have influenced why people act the way they do?"
Applications always accepted.
