Anthropology, as defined by the American Anthropological Association, “is the study of what makes us human.” Anthropologists study the differences and similarities across many different peoples and cultures. Anthropology can be divided into many subcategories. A few examples include cultural anthropology (the study of human culture) or biological anthropology, which “seeks to understand how humans adapt in different environments.” Globally, anthropologists work together to “understand more about our lives as humans.”
