Are you interested in cultural differences and the diversity of social life?

According to social and cultural anthropology, it is possible to know as many forms of human life as possible. The anthropological examination of cultural factors is not limited to the same geographical environment or community studies but to a broad ethnographic comparison. Based on the teaching of cultural anthropology, there is the ability to look at both micro-level social life and the results of a global phenomenon from a comparative social science perspective.
