After School Program

Culture, Society and Language in the 21st Century - Science Research Course

Through February 13, 2015

Introduction to Anthropology IMage

You may not always be aware of it, but culture is everywhere. Culture is made up of the language you speak, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, your religion, your gender, your ethnicity, your nationality, and even expectations of how you should behave. These dimensions of our lives determine how each of us understands the world around us, how we relate to family, friends, and strangers, and how each of them relates to us. Culture is the lens through which humans see the world and it exists in almost endless diversity throughout the world. In this course, we will explore how anthropologists study cultural differences in health, gender, economics, religion, and communication to better understand humankind.

This course is a pre-requisite for the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) in the biology and anthropology tracks.
