Major Academic Plan (MAP) Why study anthropology? Through the study of culture, anthropology offers students a set of tools and skills that help make sense of how human difference across both time and space is simultaneously preserved and threatened within an increasingly interconnected and globalized world. Archaeological anthropologists excavate the remains of past societies to learn about how we have changed and remained the same over time. Cultural and linguistic anthropologists engage contemporary communities to learn about the most pressing social, political, economic and health- related problems experienced by people throughout the world. Biological anthropologists examine human biological evolution and genetic diversity in order to understand how social and cultural choices are enacted on and encoded within the human body. This holistic study of culture enables anthropologists to provide the sort of expertise that is sought by non-profits, businesses, government agencies, community organizations and cultural resource management firms.
