Anthropology is the study of people and cultures. They do their fieldwork in the remotest parts of the wold and it is therefore obvious and almost mandatory, for an anthropologist to study abroad.

They study how people interact with the world around them and seek to get a deeper understanding of the different societies and folk of the world.
