Hi Corry,
You would probably want to study both. To understand a lot of human culture you need to go back and see where they came from.

Sociology is the scientific study of society, including patterns of social relationships, social interaction, and culture.

While, Anthropology is the study of humanity. Anthropologists reasearch early human culture, civilizations and the latest discoveries at ancient sites.

If you were trying to study human culture, you would look at a particular people and see how they interact socially today and then research where they might have come from and how they came to be.

Good luck!
