Anthropology is the scientific study of humanity, concerned with human behavior, human biology, cultures, societies, and linguistics, in both the present and past, including past human species.

Social anthropology studies patterns of behavior, while cultural anthropology studies cultural meaning, including norms and values. A portmanteau term sociocultural anthropology is commonly used today.

Linguistic anthropology studies how language influences social life. Biological or physical anthropology studies the biological development of humans.

Forensic anthropologists study bones (in the field called osteology) and profile research subjects via information gathering to determine the age, gender and physical condition of the body and bones at death. They work to assist law enforcement agencies with processing skeletal evidence.

Anthropologists earn an average annual salary of R370 000 to R574 000 depending on years in the field.
