Anthropology exists where the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences meet and, therefore, will appeal to students from a variety of backgrounds. It is a discipline that thrives with diversity and benefits from engaging people of all kinds.
Students who love learning about other cultures, past and present, will find the field of study attractive. Biological anthropology will fascinate the more science-oriented minds that seek to explore humans' place in the natural world. Students who enjoy "people-watching" may be drawn to ethnographic fieldwork while the meticulous tasks and collaborative environment associated with archaeological work may better suit others.
There is something for everyone in anthropology. It encompasses a broad range of topics, including communication, human rights and social justice, media and public culture, health and medicine, ecology, and religion - to name just a few.
If you question what it means to be human and are willing to challenge your perspective with an open mind, then anthropology may be for you.
