Anthropology is the science of people. It is often divided into biological anthropology and cultural anthropology.
Biological anthropology focuses on human beings as biological organisms, and deals with topics such as evolutionary theory, genetics, non-human primates, the fossil record of human evolution and variation among modern humans.
Cultural anthropology studies the different ways of life, including language, marriage customs, economics, and religious beliefs.
Students who continue on into bachelor's and master's programs can find employment opportunities as teachers, museum curators, anaylsts and researchers.
