Anthropology is the study of difference. It teaches us about what it means to be human from cross-cultural points of view.
Broaden your perspective and rethink what is familiar abroad and strange at home. Learn to understand diverse ways of thinking and interacting. Explore varied modes of living across geographical space and historical deep time. Embrace your global citizenship from around the corner to around the globe, and from the past to the present for the future.
The goal of anthropology is to advance our collective understanding of the human condition through anthropological research and to apply this understanding to solve human problems.
