Like historians and sociologists, anthropologists seek to understand how our past affects our present, and how individual and group behavior intersects. Anthropologists are employed by any institution that seeks to answer important questions about human behavior. 

At Pima, you will learn how biology, language and culture affect the development of societies.  You are good fit for Anthropology if you like to analyze ideas for their strengths and weaknesses, and to use logic to draw conclusions. The ability to conduct research, communicate persuasively and appreciate diversity also is important.
