What Will I LearnAnthropology is the study of the evolution of human society, life, and culture. Specifically, Anthropology answers the questions of how people lived, what they thought, and how they interacted with their particular environment. Studying how societies have developed and changed from the past to the present, Anthropology provides a critical understanding of the world today, and how the future world may evolve.
