Anthropology studies human behavior across time and space, including historical and cultural changes and is the study of humanity from a comprehensive, holistic approach. It developed from the encounter of the West with other societies around the world. Grounded in intensive conversations with all kinds of peoples, it tackles problems not only in places removed from the West but in the metropolitan world as well. As a result, any problem of human life is available for study. Anthropology has four main academic branches: social cultural, biological, archeology, and linguistics. At the same time, anthropologists are increasingly absorbed with practical concerns beyond the academy. An undergraduate major in anthropology provides students with a sound Liberal Arts education and lays a solid foundation for work in teaching, government, business, medicine, law, and graduate work.
