    The sub-fields of anthropology include cultural anthropology (the study of contemporary human cultures); physical anthropology (the study of human genetics, evolution, and primatology); archaeology (the study of past cultures); and linguistics (the study of human communication). Anthropology straddles the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Anthropological research pulls from biology, philosophy, sociology, ecology, geology, religious studies, languages, chemistry, and many more. So anthropology students learn a variety of skills and approaches, including scientific methods, statistical analyses, and qualitative analyses. Whatever sub-field a student chooses, anthropology challenges them to view their own world in a fundamentally different way, and to re-think their assumptions about the very nature of humankind.

    The Anthropology discipline at Morris has a committed faculty with a variety of specialties, such as Latin American cultures and agrarian systems; China and gender; and the archaeology of the Southwest and Mediterranean region. There are regular opportunities for field work and research to get students started on their careers.

    An anthropology major provides many professional options after graduation. The degree provides entry into careers in business, law, social work, and many other fields, particularly those that value employees with an ability to work in a multi-cultural environment, whether here in the United States, or internationally. Students may also continue on in higher degree programs and advanced academic work that can lead to teaching and research at the university level.

Anthropology applies this understanding to problems faced by different groups of people in the flux of the modern world.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
