Anthropology

    Major overview

    Overview

    Anthropology studies what it means to be human in a globalising world, providing a critical vantage point from which to reflect on ourselves and others. Its distinctive methodology, based on intense, long-term participation in people's daily lives, allows for ideas to
    develop out of local experience and knowledge.

    This major explores the extraordinary variety of cultural and social forms found around the globe, focusing on the diverse ways people interact, organise their relationships, and find meaning in their lives.

    A major in Anthropology will expand your horizons by challenging the assumptions behind what we take for granted in society, and enhance your empathy for the perspectives of others. You’ll apply these lessons not just in theoretical inquiry but in designing your own ethnographic projects.

    Through self-reflection, and a heightened appreciation of cultural diversity, this major will enhance your ability to meet goals and challenges - both in the workplace and personal life.
