ANTHROPOLOGY

Anthropology is the comparative study of cultures, societies and human diversity across space and time. Uniquely in academia, anthropology integrates approaches across the social and natural sciences and humanities to understand the human condition. Anthropologists emphasize human variation and the situated and subjective ways humans create meaning, value and engage in social within wider technological, economic and political forces. A background in Anthropology is excellent preparation for careers in public service, non-government organizations, international agencies, the education sector, and museums, in Canada – one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world – and beyond. Anthropology prepares you for the world.
