Installing hall light that has switches at each end of hall


I am attempting to change out the current hall light with a new one and am not sure how to wire it. Will there be 2 black and 2 white wires (one from each switch)? If so, do I connect both the black wires to the one black wire on the light fixture and do the same for the white wires?

I really would appreciate your help.

Thanks,

Just connect it the same way you take the old one off.
Don't change any wiring.
