(3,0) 3 Credits
General Education Course: Social Science
Prerequisite(s): Placement into ENGL 111 English Composition I with ENGL 070 English Composition I Workshop , or higher.
Using the concepts of evolutionary biology we trace the emergence of humans and their near relatives, the non-human primates. Through both the various theories and methodologies of physical anthropology and related disciplines, students examine the fossil and archeological record to understand the evolution of humans as a bio-social animal. Emphasis is also placed on the different ways in which anthropologists work to gain their information and interpret their data. There may be an optional field trip to a local museum.
