Sociology and anthropology are complementary approaches to the study of society and culture. While sociologists usually study modern urban industrial societies, anthropologists take a broader perspective.
Anthropology is the comparative study of human life and culture, past and present. It is concerned with human biological and cultural adaptations to physical and social environments throughout time and in all parts of the world.
The basic themes of anthropology include adaptation, evolution, change, and continuity. Opportunities exist to apply anthropological knowledge to many problems of modern society, including the social impact of development, economic and political change, and cultural resource management.
