Are you looking for a Social Science course at UTM? The Department of Anthropology offers a wide variety of fascinating topics to choose from.
Culture exists everywhere: in families, societies, and workplaces.
Sociocultural anthropology and linguistic anthropology explore the relations, meanings, practices, and values that help explain why we do what we do. Developing the skills that allow you to gain deeper insights into cultural patterns and practices can help you succeed in your university courses, and your future career path.
Understanding viewpoints from those in positions different than our own is more important than ever.
The human-centred discipline of anthropology explores many intriguing questions, including:
- What does it mean to be human?
- Where do meanings come from?
- What do we share with others, and how are we different from them?
