In our rapidly changing world a stunning diversity of rituals and spiritual beliefs coexist with mobile phones, driverless cars, transnational travel and rapid urbanisation. Anthropology explores the vast range of human possibilities and our complex relationships with transforming habitats and environments. In this subject fascinating case studies from around the world form a basis for understanding how and why people develop and express their cultural identities. Students explore the relevance of anthropology in helping make sense of the many cultural contexts and problems that define humanity today. As well as developing an informed and critical outlook on their own social worlds, students will gain skills relevant to multicultural and global contexts. This subject is suitable as an elective for all students.
