The field of anthropology is also known as the scientific are of humanity studies and explores similarities and divergence between human beings and animals. Moreover, anthropology deals with the origins, biologic features, social and physical factors, as well as cultural characteristics of human beings.
Anthropology has four sub-disciplines: archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology and cultural anthropology.

The field also pays a huge attention to cultural aspects and ethnographic research. Graduates can work as university teachers, community development workers, journalists, social workers, human resources managers, race relations workers, international organization administrators, charity officers, museum education officers and etc.
