Anthropology is dedicated to the exploration of human diversity. As a social and biological science, the discipline embraces a broad view of humanity according to the methods and topics of its four subfields: cultural anthropology (the study of people as social and cultural beings, whether in small-scale societies or complex global organizations); linguistic anthropology (the study of language-use and linguistic diversity in social life); archaeology (the study of social and cultural life through material remains, from a long-term historical perspective); and biological anthropology (the study of human and non-human primate evolution, the biology and diversity of living human populations, and the behavior and ecology of non-human primates).
In addition to conducting academic research, anthropologists apply their knowledge to solve real-world problems in such fields as education, healthcare, forensics, cultural resource management, economic development, marketing, and environmental conservation.
