Socio-Cultural Anthropology (BANT 202)


Description
Dear Students
This paper is designed to understand the development of human societies, cultures and their close relations with environment, say society. It will help the students to understand the socio-cultural behaviour of man and the inter-relationship of various cultures across many societies. This also gives the anthropological knowledge on how a society works and exists through their own socio-political set up. In addition to the above, this will teach the student about the basic concept of religion and various religious practices found across societies.
