To study anthropology you must have an open mind and an intense curiosity about mankind in the past. Anthropologists look for clues about how humans lived in the past, and how different groups of people interacted on a social and economic level. This study includes the many languages, customs, religions, social hierarchies, and other aspects of people from different regions and periods of time. Anthropology is the study of what has made us human through the ages and the links that bond all of humanity across the many centuries. If you are not interested in how humans thousands of years ago differ from our species today, and how they were the same, then this is not a field that would be fascinating. For many people anthropology helps to uncover the secrets of man through history and sheds light on human behavior.
