ANTH 1300 Origin and Diversity of Humankind


This course provides a comprehensive understanding of what it means to be human through an integrated study of biology and culture. Using a broad 4-field approach (Biological, Cultural, Linguistic, Archaeological) it traces the evolutionary development of uniquely human traits and examines the immense diversity of human culture, past and present. While acknowledging differences, students will develop an appreciation for the unity of modern humans as a result of our shared ancestry. This anthropological perspective will help students recognize our interdependent connection with the natural world and each other as a basis for dealing with the complexity of modern human life. Some sections of this course are writing intensive.
