What is Anthropology?

Anthropology is the study of humans, past and present. Anthropologists tackle big human problems, such as conservation, warfare, and poverty. Anthropological study and training provides knowledge, skills and tools to work with people, study the past, and shape the future. Anthropologists work in practically every environment and setting imaginable. They can be found working in large corporations such as Google and eBay or studying primates in Africa.
