Anthropology is based on cross-cultural, bio-cultural and holistic approaches to the scientific understanding of human behavior and society, both past and present. The discipline, noted for its considerable theoretical and methodological diversity, encompasses varying approaches and foci within anthropology including sociocultural, linguistic and applied anthropology, with a focus on ethnography. Moreover, the emphasis on increasing knowledge in these areas of inquiry is complemented by a strong commitment to the application of anthropological knowledge to the solving of human problems. In recent years, some graduates have pursued advanced training in anthropology and related disciplines while others have entered the professions (medicine, law and teaching) and diverse public and private sector careers. The anthropology major provides an excellent background for a variety of jobs and vocations.
