Anthropology is the study of difference - it teaches us about what it means to be human from cross-cultural points of view. Broaden your perspective and rethink what is familiar abroad and strange at home. Learn to understand diverse ways of thinking, varied modes of living across space and time, and different ways of interacting. Embrace your global citizenship -
from the local to the transnational, and from the past to the present for the future.
