ANTH 101: Primates, People, and Prehistory

Have you ever stopped to wonder what makes us human? This course is an introduction to human biological and cultural evolution—using evidence, methods, and theories from biological anthropology and archaeology—to explore us, from our hominin ancestors to the invention of agriculture and to the development of complex societies. Together, we will gain a deeper understanding of major milestones in our development as a biological and cultural species by learning about the relationship between human biology, culture, history, material culture, and environment. By the end of the semester, students will gain a basic understanding of archaeology and biological anthropology, learn how they work with and relate to other subfields of anthropology, and the connections between them and other social and natural sciences.

Course Description: 

Anthropology is a comparative study of human societies and their diversity past and present. Thefield challenges us to consider the ways in which people’s lives and social relations are shaped by political, economic, and historical forces. This class takes a survey-style approach to presenting a broad range of past and current theories, methodology, and concepts in cultural anthropology in order to introduce students to a range of human social life and cultural phenomena. 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
