Course Description

Anthropology Diploma Course

What is anthropology?

Anthropology course is the studying of humankind, the study of human culture and societies along with their development.

This course provides you with an in depth study into where human life began, what first human organisations, societies and cultures and even language were actually like and how they grew.

Step-by-step detailed explanations on how early primitive man in small villages have grown into us – states and empires across the planet.

Humans began millions of years ago and through anthropology it aims to explore the whole spectrum of evolutionary time, geographical locations of all of human existence and its progress through time. Anthropology offers this understanding!

Some of the burning questions anthropology aims to answer:

  • Did the earliest humans have light or dark skins?
  • Are human beings violent by nature?
  • How are we related to monkeys and chimpanzees?
  • How did language develop?
  • Is the human body/brain still evolving or is this it?
  • Why are we all different sizes and shapes?
  • What is reality itself?

If for example the whole world was the colour blue and everything was shades of blue would we have an understanding or a grasp of all concepts of colour?

If everything was one colour would we know otherwise? Without the other colours how can we find comparison or contrast?

This can also be applied to time and space and all objects of form within it. What else is there that is here but we can’t see it because we need opposites to gain contrast, that which is all around us but we can’t identify it because we still evolving and have not developed the sense to it yet!

What is DNA? How did it get here? Did it evolve and grow?

The whole solar system is a mass of DNA travelling through space and our senses are the outward tentacles to interact with our surrounding environments.

We are so advanced, sophisticated and intelligent so how did this all happen, did it just happen through the law of  cause-and-effect or a chain reaction of endless events, one thing leading to the next, therefore all is dependent origination, the vehicle that carries us through our development as a species.

Could the human eye/lens have developed all on its own or was it created by a supernatural intelligence? Anthropology aims to explain this and many more. If we were created by a supernatural intelligence then were did that supernatural intelligence come from?

Anthropology works to understand the internal thinking and logic of other cultures and societies and come to grips with differing behaviours, arts, paintings, and rituals on life.

Anthropology aims to turn normal every day views of the world around to be shown and seen in a new light of understanding from a different angle.
