  • ANT 100 - Introduction to Anthropology
    What is it to be human? Anthropologists attempt to answer this question by learning as much as possible about human societies past and present, using holistic, comparative, field based, and evolutionary perspectives. Students will explore the questions, methods, and domains of anthropology. They will reflect on concepts of culture and evolutionary theory, human variation and primatology. They will examine archeological and ethnographic evidence and discuss political, economic, and social questions of equality, expansion, and globalization.
