What is Sociology?
Sociology is the systematic study of society and social behavior, including the behavior of individuals, groups, organizations, and whole societies as they are influenced by social processes, social structures, and culture.

What is Anthropology?
Anthropology is the interdisciplinary study of humankind, in all forms, from our beginnings to the present. It promotes a critical perspective about ourselves, our societies, and our relationship with other societies within the broader global framework. Through its emphasis on cultural relativity and context, anthropology supports the holistic exploration of the human condition by observing cultures in the present, investigating materials made in the past, examining key biological characteristics, and documenting the variety of languages used by people.
