Anthropology studies the full range of the human experience from human origins and past cultures to traditional and modern societies. While anthropology documents human behavior and cultural patterns around the world, it is also concerned with assisting people who navigate today’s complex and changing world.
Forensic anthropology combines archaeology and the sciences of physical or biological anthropology to the medico-legal process. This primarily includes the processes of recovery and identification of unknown human remains. Museum studies provides specialized knowledge and practical experience in museum collections management, exhibit development, digital technologies, funding, outreach, education, ethics and political aspects of a museum’s role in society
