Cultural Anthropology Immersion

Cultural anthropology is the study of culture past and present from a worldwide comparative perspective. As a disciplinary field, cultural anthropology attempts to provide insights on how human beings across the globe live and work and shape their cultural world in families, cities, societies, ethnic groups, nations, and networked solidarities through ideas, ideologies, beliefs, and values or worldviews. One of the goals of cultural anthropology is to promote understanding among peoples–an increasingly important venture in our vastly interconnected world communities. This immersion is closed to students majoring in the sociology and anthropology major who have chosen the cultural anthropology track.
