The study of humans in the past and present, anthropologists look at human behaviour and societies to find answers to how early humans lived, why we behave the way we do in the present and how that could impact our future.

Cultural anthropology looks at topics such as linguistics, society, religion and politics, while physical anthropology includes the subfields of archaeology and forensic anthropology, exploring human behaviour through the examination of material remains.

Anthropology prepares students for careers in:

  • archaeology
  • history
  • public relations
  • law
  • museum studies
  • international relations
  • tourism
  • political science
