ANT-120 Intro Biological Anthropology

Biological Anthropology is a branch of anthropology centered on the biological & behavioral aspects of humanity, our non-human primate "relatives," and our extinct hominin ancestors. This course will cover theories relating to biological evolution and its application to the human species. There is a specific focus on topics such as evolution, natural selection, primatology, paleoanthropology, biocultural adaptations, human variation, and current bioethical issues. Lastly, this course will introduce the scientific basis for examining how biological, physical, and cultural variations have allowed human populations to adapt to various physical environments around the world.
