Courses in Anthropology

Educational courses in anthropology can be thought of as the comparative study of human culture, behaviour and biology; and how these change through time. The term anthropology can be applied to a wide variety of disciplines and, as such, is often broken into four subfields: biological, social, cultural and linguistic.

  • Biological Anthropology courses are concerned with the physical changes of mankind: evolution, natural selection and genetics.
  • Social Anthropology courses are the area of study relating to the social behaviour of humans: family ties and relationships; social structure; and political, legal and economic organisation.
  • Cultural Anthropology courses use observational studies as a way of examining and defining ‘culture': This is achieved through observing customs, art, morals and knowledge.
  • Linguistic anthropology courses involve the study and documentation of languages.
