9.Anthropology: An Overview The word anthropology is derived from two Greek words “Anthropos” meaning humans and“logia” meaning study. It is the science that studies the origin, development, and customs of human beings. It involves the study of people, both in the past and in the present day, using many methodsincluding studying and classifying fossils and artifacts, and analyzing behaviours, languages, andother characteristics of specific cultural groups. Two major branches within anthropology include cultural anthropology and physicalanthropology. Physical anthropology: examining bone and stone remains of our ancient ancestors, studyingprimates, and examining the physical differences and similarities of existing human populations. Cultural anthropology: learning about the origins and cultures of different races and peoples,studying the history and structure of language, examining the ways humans use language tocommunicate, and studying the physical remains of past cultures. Essentially, anthropology examines what makes humans “human.”

10.Psychology: An Overview Psychology comes from the Greek words psyche (“soul” or “mind”) and logos (“studyof”). It is interested in the human mind and how it functions. Psychologists often look for links between human behaviour and the mental processes. Psychologists will study the following mental activities: Cognition - knowledge and beliefs Emotions - affect, mood and feelings Motivations - drives, needs, desires and goals It often involves constructing models to understand individual experiences. Essentially, psychologists are intrigued by what’s happening inside the mind.

11.Sociology: An Overview Sociology comes from the Greek words socius meaning “companion” and logy meaning“study of.” Studies how humans relate to one another on a social level. Sociologists often look for patterns in human behaviour and use statistics to studysocietal trends, issues, individuals, and groups. It can take 2 approaches: Macrosociology: concerned with studying society as a whole and analyzing socialsystems and populations on a large scale. Microsociology: concerned with the role and interactions an individual or small group ofpeople may have on society. Essentially, sociologists are interested in human interactions and how social systemsand institutions shape individuals and groups in society (eg. government, religion,media).
