Anthropology

Anthropology

Anthropology literally means "the study of humans". Since it is such a large discipline, it is generally broken down into four subfields (cultural, archaeology, physical and linguistics). Anthropologists are employed in a wide range of careers, depending on their background and expertise. Anthopology 202, 203 and 204 are considered "general education" and IAI approved courses.

These courses provide an introduction to the study of the origins, development and varieties of human beings and their societies. They can contribute to an increased understanding of the causes, effects and uses of politics, language, culture and religion in the past, present and future.
