ANT* 101: Introduction to Anthropology

3 Credits
(Formerly ANTH 101)
This course will present the evolution of the human species and human culture through fossil, ethnographic, and genetic insight.  It seeks to explain the similarities and differences between all humans and other primates.  It takes the student from cave paintings in southern France to a dig in the Sinai Desert, from an extinct volcanic crater in Africa to a shamanistic dance in Nepal to a political feast in the Amazon.  It does all this in search of answers to that elusive question at the core of all anthropological research: What does it mean to be human?
Prerequisites: Eligibility for ENG* 101
