Anthropology (BA in combination)


Anthropology looks at the many ways people in different places, and different times, relate to one another and to the world around them. Anthropologists explore human nature and human society through the comparative study of such things as family, marriage, religious and spiritual practices, livelihoods, creativity, settlement of legal disputes, social inequality and much more.
