Welcome to Anthropology

Anthropology is the study of humans and their interactions with each other and the environment. We interact with people every day. Anthropology can help us learn why people do the things they do, why they act the way they act, why they say the things they say. Whether we work in a shopping-mall or in a law office, we deal with people. Studying anthropology helps us to deal with them better, trying to understand their motivations and rationale.

Anthropology is the study of these cultural and biological aspects of human life. How humans interact with each other and with the environment? Why they behave the way they behave? Why they say the different things they say? The study of anthropology helps to deal with people in a better manner.

However, with different climates, foods and religions they grow up into different individuals, speaking different languages, and wearing different cloths. The Main aim of the study of the anthropology is to understand the basic differences between various cultures and human societies. This makes the subject matter of the study vast.
