  • Examine how humans live, think, communicate, produce and interact with their social and physical environment

Physical Anthropology: The social science that seeks to

understand and define the physical or biological nature

of human beings.

Cultural Anthropology: The study of how culture shapes

human ideas and learned behaviour in societies around the

world.
