Anthropology is the study of human being, and human diversity. Anthropologists study human cultural and biological diversity in the contemporary world as well as in the past, through the holistic integration of both scientific and humanistic disciplines. The four sub-fields of Anthropology are cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics. Many anthropologists work in the public sphere as well as in academia. There is no other discipline that is as broadly envisioned and better poised to prepare students for tackling the global issues of the 21st century.
