Anthropology includes four broad fields: archaeology, cultural anthropology, physical (biological) anthropology, and linguistic anthropology. At UA Little Rock, we believe a well-rounded anthropology degree should be grounded in the four fields.
Language is one of the things that makes us truly human. Linguistic anthropology is about how language and culture are connected. It helps us understand how different parts of language fit together and how they affect the way people live. It’s like opening a door to learn more about how humans express themselves and interact with each other.
If you are fascinated with language and how people shape relationships and the world around them by how they talk about it, linguistic anthropology may be a good fit for you.
