ANTH 120 - Introduction to Physical Anthropology

Credits: 3

Description: This course provides a survey of biological anthropology - the study of human beings and their ancestors within an evolutionary framework. The biocultural approach highlights the ways biology, culture and behavior interact. We will cover the basics of genetics and evolutionary theory; study primate physical characteristics and social behaviors; and investigate human biological variation and adaptation to the environment. This evidence will be used to trace human evolution: from the earliest primates to the first bipedal hominids to modern humans.
