Anthropology is the study of humans in the past and present. It draws on the humanities as well as social, biological, and physical sciences. Historically, anthropologists in the United States study one of four topics, or sub-fields: sociocultural anthropology, biological/physical anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics.
