Cultural Anthropology

Cultural Anthropology is the study of human society and culture. Anthropologists in this discipline use ethnography and ethnology to examine social and cultural similarities and differences. Cultural anthropologists study humans as close as your own neighborhood, and as far as the most remote village or town. At Eastern Kentucky University, students learn about societies, and explore diverse topics, such as how culture affects: how humans interact with one another; family and kinship patterns; rural and urban life; education; law; medicine; and religious life.
