Summer 2016 Anthropology Courses

Posted by Tim on April 27, 2016 in Academics, General Education Requirements, Summer Courses

July 11—August 19, 2016
Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00am-12:10pm
This course introduces students to the central concepts and questions of cultural anthropology as well as patterns of human cultural expression across the globe. This course explores the sociocultural factors that shape who we are as humans, our behavior, and perceptions. We
will examine some of the social categories and institutions that have profound influences on
the lives of human beings (e.g. families, economies, political systems, religions), as well as the categories of expression (e.g. language, symbolism, medicine, ecology), and processes of contemporary cultural change around the world.

July 11—August 19, 2016
Mondays and Wednesdays 6:30pm-9:40pm
Humans have always sought to understand where we came from, why we are the way we are, and where we fit amongst the animal kingdom. Physical anthropology—the study of human evolution and origins—attempts to answer these questions, looking at our past and contemporary non-human primates for clues. This course will trace our human origins, from the earliest possible fossil hominins, looking at variations and adaptations that ultimately led to modern humans. We will discuss evolutionary theory and genetics, the fossil record, contemporary non-human primates, and human adaptations, applying these ideas to help us understand our place in the world.

May 31—July 8, 2016
Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00am-12:10pm
Archaeology is a field of study focused on understanding the human past from the material remains preserved and uncovered in modern times. In this course, we will explore the world and human diversity throughout time, find out how archaeologists interpret the past using artifacts, sites, and human remains, discover the greatest archaeological finds of all time, and learn to decipher fact from fiction in popular portrayals of past societies. This introduction to the field of archaeology will bring to life the fascinating study of ancient cultures, in a short but dynamic six-week summer course.
