The Importance of Studying Anthropology
It is the broadest in scope among the social and behavioral sciences since its domain encompasses all that is human in time and space. This vast undertaking has meant that anthropology has developed specialized subfields, including anthropological linguistics, archaeology, cultural anthropology and physical anthropology.
Anthropologists work inside and outside of the academy and are visible and invisible participants in multiple scientific endeavors as well as applied research and practice. There is no better field with which to engage the world, its peoples and its diversity – past and present – and no more enthralling career choice than anthropology.
