Anthropology & Sociology

Anthropology is the study of humanity and Sociology is the study of human social relationships. The benefit of studying them together is gaining insights into how society works, by examining the way we live now and the variety of different societies and cultures that have existed over time. People spend their entire lives in social groups and networks, ranging from the family to global systems. By investigating the diversity of cultures across the globe and studying human evolution and the ancient past, you entertain new perceptions on what makes life meaningful. Students delve into Homo sapiens’ context in communities to uncover a rich understanding of the human story. Developing the ability to analyze society is a core component of the educational and personal development of our students.
