Anthropology concerns itself with all aspects of human life. As students become more and more concerned with intercultural relationships and understandings, their need for an anthropological perspective increases.  Students who have studied anthropology at the high school level should: 

  • Demonstrate an understanding of anthropology as the study of the total way of life of human beings.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the value of anthropology as a means of improving social and cultural relations.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the methods, techniques and tools used by anthropologists.
