Anthropology » Overview

Where we have evolved from, where we are now and where we are heading – all of these paths aim to be answered through the study of anthropology.


Anthropology is, essentially, the study of humankind – looking at the origins, development and characteristics of the many cultures across the world, past and present.

Through examination of the wide variety of ways in which people around the world live and through understanding of what humans have in common, students will gain the fundamental core principles of Anthropology. Study in Anthropology will provide students with skills in analysis and communication. As well as building an awareness of culture and society.

Cultural Anthropology

Cultural Anthropology is the study of what it means to be human. Culture is defined as patterns of human behaviour. These behaviours are influenced by the history, customs, values and beliefs of a particular society that are passed down as knowledge to every member of a certain society. Cultural Anthropology looks at different human groups/societies and tries to understand why their ways of life are so different.
