The anthropology major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences focuses on the study of human beings and their cultural interaction. It examines how humans have evolved culturally and physically; how people organize themselves in societies (families, tribes, chiefdoms, ranked societies, stratified societies, and formal organizations); how individuals behave in groups (collective action, social change, tradition, and ritual); how people make a living in societies (hunter/gatherers, agriculture, and industrial societies); and how categories like age, race, ethnicity, social class, religion, and gender affect relationships amongst people and within organizations and institutions. The major also studies the relationships between cultures and their effects on humankind, including the causes and effects of colonialism, neocolonialism, migration, war, and globalization.
