Social Sciences


What does it mean to be human? How have we changed over the years? Anthropology employs a scientific perspective to reveal evidence through investigation, exploration and exhilarating discoveries. Social Sciences has the unique mission of explaining relationships and groups of people by using facts and data, otherwise known as empirical evidence. Anthropology brings together hard-hitting scientists to explain and discover the commonalities of humankind through Cultural Anthropology and Biological Anthropology. Think of these scientists as the "dot connectors". They bring hard facts to the table to either confirm or deny different hypotheses.
