What makes human beings unique? What do our actions, beliefs, and rituals say about who we are? How do they compare across cultures? In the field of anthropology, we study all aspects of human life. This introduction to anthropology course will introduce students to human evolution, archaeology, cultural anthropology and linguistics. Through discussions, videos and lectures we will cover a variety of topics including race, gender, food, and how our ancient ancestors lived.
