Anthropologists study our species throughout time, focusing on our diverse modern culture and cultural adaptations, our biological classification as a species, and our inclusion in the Order Primates, and our species’ past developments, including our first steps to our first civilizations. The goal of Anthropology is to study the similarities and differences in biological and cultural adaptations and features across the globe throughout our human history.
Anthropology is a holistic discipline, which means that anthropologists study all aspects of human behavior. This includes Cultural Anthropology, Physical Anthropology, Archaeology, and Linguistics.
