Understanding the Panorama of Human Existence: Welcome to Anthropology at UTM

Anthropology is the study of humankind from its beginnings to the present day. Many disciplines concern themselves with the human, but only anthropology seeks to interpret the whole panorama of human existence — in geographic space and evolutionary time — through comparative and holistic study.
