Anthropology  is the study of "us" everywhere in time. This includes who we are biologically and culturally. Anthropologists do this by observing current cultures, studying skeletal material, and in the case of archaeologists, by digging up the past. The  Anthropology  Program at Columbia College introduces students to the four subfields of  Anthropology: archaeology, biological  anthropology , cultural  anthropology , and linguistics.
