In online Cultural Anthropology, you’ll explore human diversity across multiple spectrums: economic, political, social and cultural. You’ll learn how to understand people in terms of race and ethnicity, marriage and family, gender and sexuality, and religion and belief systems. And how to apply this understanding to the connection between power, authority, and politics and relate them to social control, nationalism, external relations and globalization. You’ll also study the science of anthropology, and familiarize yourself with its methods, ethics and history.
