ON BEING HUMAN
Understanding the human condition – how we got here and where we’re going – in an increasingly diverse world is at the core of your studies in anthropology. Through teaching and research in academic areas such as archaeology, forensic anthropology and culture and ethnic diversity, we’ll provide you with an understanding and appreciation of the range of human cultures, as well as the significance of biological evolution to the human condition.
