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.

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.
