Anthropology is the holistic study of humans, with the emphasis on humans in communities and cultural groups rather than a singular approach of studying individuals. The Anthropology course focuses on the all-inclusive and comparative breadth of the subject, studying humans from a wide variety of social, cultural, biological and evolutionary perspectives. Studying Anthropology gives the opportunity to engage with issues such as these and many more. The study of social Anthropology helps one to appreciate and respect the customs and beliefs of other societies, as well as holding a powerful mirror up to your own cultural norms. Biological anthropology allows you to understand our evolutionary history, our response to environmental challenges and our relationship to the other primates. Amity University is one among the few universities that offer integrated course on biological as well as social anthropology collectively and it is our aim to give access to a rich and rewarding environment that fosters anthropological learning and enhance the studentsí confidence, skills and academic groundwork to tackle a wide range of challenges.
