What is Anthropology?
Anthropology is the study of what makes us human. Anthropologists take a broad approach to understanding the many different aspects of the human experience. Traditionally, anthropology is divided into four broad sub-fields, each teaching a distinctive approach to understanding the diversity of human culture.
Archaeology – the study of human cultures of the past focusing on objects or artifacts left behind.
Biological/Physical anthropology – the study of how human biology has evolved and adapted to different environments.
Cultural anthropology – the study of diverse cultures, norms, values and behaviors around the world
Linguistic anthropology – the study of how language and communication are key to cultures understanding cultures across the globe
At Bemidji State University, anthropology courses are focused on cultural anthropology and biological/physical anthropology. We focus on what it means to be human and the diversity of the human condition.
