Anthropology (BA)

Anthropology (BA)

Anthropology takes culture as its central object of study, giving students a framework for viewing culture in the context of the natural world and evolutionary processes. Anthropologists also study the organization of social life, as well as symbolic and ideological systems. Anthropology views the world of human culture as a natural laboratory in which diverse historical experiments have occurred and are occurring.
