Course Objectives

Although anthropology had built a reputation for producing the knowledge of “other” people’s culture, thoughts and behaviors; the discipline already made its home-coming several decades ago. Since then, anthropological perspectives and methods have gradually become of importance to understand and compete with highly diversified socio-cultural encounters in the contemporary world.

For this reason, developing an anthropological understanding would be critical for anyone who would like to participate in global society.
