Anthropology involves the study of present and past human culture and biology to better understand the human species. With diverse but overlapping subfields, including archaeological, biological, sociocultural, linguistic, and applied anthropology (including cultural resource management), anthropology spans the social, behavioral, and natural sciences as well as humanities, providing a strong core to a liberal arts education. Whether studying the diversity of marriage customs in human societies, anatomical changes in the foot during human evolution, biocultural factors contributing to chronic disease, cultural and biological changes surrounding the transition to agriculture, or the origins of language, anthropologists are united in trying to understand who we are, where we come from, and where we will go in the future.
